The Fresh City Life My Branch Colorado Authors series presents Carron Barrella and the veterans of More Than 36 Days on Saturday, May 12 at 2 p.m. at the Schlessman Family Branch.
More Than 36 Days: Four Ordinary Men Face Extraordinary Circumstances is the stories of four Colorado men who served as U.S. Marines during World War II in the battle for Iwo Jima. It is not a war book--it focuses on the men, their backgrounds, and how the war experience defined them. They spent 36 days on the island, but their stories are much more than that. Learn from the hearts and souls of Don Whipple, Joe Weinmeier, Max Brown, and Jim Blane.
