Meet the Author: Jack Mayer, March 24 at 7 PM

Jack Mayer,
author of the compelling book

'Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Story'
will speak at the library
on Thursday
, March 24, at 7PM.

Irena Sendler rescued over 2,500 children from the Warsaw ghetto during World War II. Her name was virtually forgotten until some students from a rural school in Kansas uncovered her story and dramatized it for a history project.

'Life in a Jar' is the story of Irena Sendler, and it is also the story of the three students who rediscovered her and brought her legacy to life.
Ultimately, it is the inspiring story of how one person can change the world.

Jack will discuss his book in our living room at the library. Refreshments will be served!
