Alice in France - The WWI Letters of Alice O'Brien

    Tuesday, April 11, 2017 - 7:00pm

In March 1918, twenty-six-year-old Alice O’Brien of St. Paul set off for wartime France. As the daughter of a wealthy family, Alice had no need to work - no need to go to war. But she, like hundreds of American women, traveled “over there” to serve as an auxiliary nurse, a canteen worker and supply truck driver - experiences she described in breezy, but telling letters home from the front lines. With author and historian Nancy O’Brien Wagner.
