Library to host authors of 'Life Between the Letters'

LONGVIEW, December 26, 2013-- The Longview Public Library is pleased to host a book signing at 1:00 p.m., December 28, 2013, with Lana Lynne Higginbotham and Mary K. Felder, authors of Life Between the Letters: The Chuck and Mary Felder Story.

In the autobiographical story, the world was at war when a junior-grade naval lieutenant first laid eyes on the love of his life. In December 1944, after his return from naval service in Europe, Lieutenant (jg) Charles E. Felder met Mary Kosko (Felder) in New York City. Although Mary was engaged to another and “Chuck” was preparing to deploy to the Pacific, the certainty of their destined connection made them willing to face any challenges that would come. The unbreakable commitment of nineteen-year-old Mary and the surprising maturity of twenty-four-year-old Chuck are a testament to the “Greatest Generation,” and hold lessons for this generation. With the entire country making sacrifices for the war effort, they found strength, resilience, and Life Between the Letters.” The couple went on to celebrate 56 years of marriage before Chuck passed away in 2001.

Residents are invited to come to the library on Saturday, December 28, to meet authors Lana and Mary! They’ll share this riveting story, answer questions and sign autographs.
