It’s always momentous when Bob Zonneville comes to Mentor Public Library.

Zonneville is a World War II veteran who received a Bronze Star and two Purple Hearts.

He—along with local historian Thom Matowitz, who literally wrote the book on Mentor—hosted a special program where they discussed what life was like for veterans when they returned from World War II.

(Please accept our apologies, in advance, if you can’t hear the audience questions. Next time we’ll have to pass around a microphone.)

If you love WWII history, you’ll want to catch our new Major Leaders of World War II series.

The first talk is 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, at our Main Branch. The topic will be the life of Hitler. (It will be his birthday, after all.)

The program is free and open to everyone. However, we do ask that you register beforehand. You can sign up online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 216.
