Join the Howell Carnegie Library for refreshments and an opportunity to meet local author and World War II Vet Donald R. Burgett. Burgett was a Screaming Eagle Paratrooper with the 101st 506, Co. A. and fought through Normandy, Holland, Bastogne, Austria, and Germany. Don holds the title of being the first enlisted man to write and publish a history of the American Airborne. His first book Currahee! is considered a classic and is the only book that President Dwight D. Eisenhower endorsed.
Autographed books will be available for purchase during the event.
