Free

Join us as we welcome back Kathy Kirkpatrick for a reading and signing of her newest, AMERICAN PRISONER OF WAR CAMPS IN ARIZONA AND NEVADA!

AMERICAN PRISONER OF WAR CAMPS IN ARIZONA AND NEVADA describes the impact of the large number of prisoners of war on the populations of Arizona and Nevada, as well as the impact of the people of Arizona and Nevada on those imprisoned there. Providing detail on the care and employment of prisoners of war according to the Geneva Convention of 1929, the lives of POWs in these states are illustrated, along with the details of camp locations in Arizona and Nevada and the deaths and burials that occurred among them. Some prisoner names are included, as well as references to source materials at various repositories. Historical photographs serve to provide depth to the story.

KATHY KIRKPATRICK has a Bachelor of Arts in History from Humboldt State University in Arcata, California, and has authored Basic Genealogy, The Descendants of Timothy Meeker, Italian Prisoners of War in the Continental US on 31 March 1945, Prisoners of War in Utah During World War II, Sicily, American Prisoner of War Camps in Idaho and Utah, and Prisoner of War Camps Across America. She has delivered lectures on “WWII POWs in America,” “WWII Enemy Aliens in America,” and “Proving the Jewish Heritage of a Catholic Sicilian Family,” and provided research for Italian Emigrants, Italian Emigrants by Tina Bochicchio Woetzel, Sinatra, The Life by Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan, and II Giuramento by Dino Maurizio Parri.

The reading will be followed by a signing.
