James Carl Nelson, the author of Remains of Company D: A Story of the Great War, will be the featured speaker for the Friends of Door County Libraries’ Fall Book & Author event, Oct. 1 and 2.
As well as “the Great War,” World War I was long known as “the war to end all wars.” But in recent times, it’s also come to be called “the forgotten war.” But not for Nelson, whose grandfather, John Nelson, served in World War I (and lived the last 10 years of his life in Door County). Nelson spent seven years researching the battlefield experiences of the men who served, and died, with Company D.
Nelson will speak at the Miller Art Museum, 107 S. 4th Avenue, Sturgeon Bay at 7 pm on Friday, Oct. 1 and at the Sister Bay Liberty Grove Firehouse, 2256 Mill Rd., Sister Bay at 10 am on Saturday, Oct. 2. Copies of his book will be available for sale/signing and complimentary refreshments will be served. As always, this free program is presented as a community service by the Friends of Door County Libraries. (Donation of a non-perishable food item for Feed My People is appreciated.)
Also, in the next issue of the Pulse, an interview by Mindi Vanderhoof with James Carl Nelson will be printed.
