Author Talk with Jane Healey

May 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Local author and Arlington native Jane Healey will discuss the history behind her latest novel The Beantown Girls, a book based on the true stories of the Red Cross Clubmobile Girls in the European theater of operations in WWII.  Published in February, The Beantown Girls is a Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestseller. This work of historical fiction was made possible by the real-life Red Cross Clubmobile Girls
themselves. According to Healey, they were “fantastic writers who documented their experiences in meticulous and thoughtful ways.”

The Beantown Girls offers a glimpse of the “Greatest Generation” and the sacrifices of war from a female perspective, and once again brings to light their breathtaking courage, compassion and sacrifice during one of the most volatile times in our history. 

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
