CommunityREAD presentation @ Winebrenner Theological Seminary
Mar 27 @ 7:00 pm
Author Mitchell Zuckoff will speak at the Winebrenner Auditorium on the campus of the University of Findlay at 7 p.m. Friday, March 27 as the feature event for the 13th annual CommunityREAD. Zuckoff’s book, “Lost in Shangri-La,” was selected to be read and discussed by the community during the month of March. Zuckoff is a professor of journalism at Boston University and the author of six books, including the New York Times bestsellers “13 Hours,” “Frozen in Time” and “Lost in Shangri-La,” which won the Winship/PEN Award for non-fiction. The book, “Lost in Shangri-La,” tells the true story of an extraordinary World War II rescue mission, where a plane crash in the South Pacific plunged a trio of U.S. military personnel into a land that time has forgotten. In 1945, 24 members of the United States military, including nine Women’s Army Corps members, boarded a plane to see “Shangri-La,” a beautiful valley deep within the Dutch New Guinea jungle. But when the plane crashed only three survived. Drawn from interviews, Army documents, photos, diaries and original film footage, the tale is among the great survival stories of World War II. In addition to “Lost in Shangri-La,” three related YouthREAD books have been selected. This year’s youth books are: “I Survived: Bombing of Pearl Harbor, 1941” by Lauren Tarshis; “I’m the Scariest Thing in the Jungle!” by David G. Derrick Jr.; and “Jungle of Bones” by Ben Mikaelsen.
