Author Diane Amato will join us to discuss her book All The News From Home, which is based on 368 government issued V Mail letters sent to Joseph “George” Amato while he was stationed in England as an embalmer for the United States Army during WWII. The letters from home and the story that follows creates a unique opportunity for the reader to become thoroughly absorbed in family, loyalty and love that is both intensely personal and at the same time universal. What comes through clearly in these letters is the sense of George's home, which we Wisconsinites will recognize as Madison's well-loved Italian neighborhood known as "The Bush."
