In celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War, Robert Grede of Brookfield will review his novel The Spur & The Sash at the Wauwatosa Woman’s Club (WWC) 1626 Wauwatosa Ave. on April 4th. The book is based on some real events and a real person, Sergeant George Van Norman who was wounded in one of the last battles of the American Civil War. Meticulously researched using letters, diaries and official records, it’s a story about love, passion and betrayal of postwar Tennessee. George left behind a spur and a sash, passed down through generations finally making it's way to the author. The book review will begin at 1:00pm. Tea will be served at 2:00pm. The WWC will have their historic museum open with a special display of ten posters from World War 1. RSVP by April 1st to Joan Riggin at 414-475-1836 or firstname.lastname@example.org
