Muhlenberg Community Library

Wednesday February 28th--6:30 to 7:30 PM

Teresa Messineo will discuss her novel, The Fire by Night, published by Harper Collins, and its subject matter--women nurses during World War II.

Teresa Messineo is a Berks County resident, and The Fire by Night is her debut novel. 

 It has been described by Harper Collins as "A powerful and evocative debut novel about two American military nurses during World War II that illuminates the unsung heroism of women who risked their lives in the fight—a riveting saga of friendship, valor, sacrifice, and survival combining the grit and selflessness of Band of Brothers with the emotional resonance of The Nightingale."

Don't miss this chance to meet Teresa Messineo. You are welcome to bring your own copies of The Fire by Night to be autographed. This event is free to the public.
