Posted on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 at 4:46 am

The Farber Branch Library invites area residents to visit their location for a special presentation at 2 p.m. Thursday, May 21.
Author Marsha Norris Knudsen will make a presentation on her book about World War II called “Sailor’s Mail S.W.A.K.”
The book tells the true story of newlyweds Homer and Ruth Norris, whose lives are abruptly changed by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
Sixty-three years after Homer Norris served in the U.S. Navy, his daughter discovered an old family trunk filled with memorabilia from the 1940’s and was able to skillfully recreate her parents’ (Home and Ruth Norris) World War II journey.
