Engelmann will also share personal slides during the presentation. Wednesday, October 2 at 6 p.m. at the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch.

“Remarkable. . . . A gift from a heroine who was killed at twenty-seven but whose voice has survived to remind us of the humanity and decency that endure amid—and despite—the horror and chaos of war.”
—Francine Prose, O, The Oprah Magazine

“Last Night I Dreamed of Peace is a book to be read by all and included in any course on the literature of war.”
Chicago Tribune
