An American on the Western Front

Thursday, April 12, 6:30 p.m.

Join Patrick Gregory, former BBC journalist and co-author of An American on the Western Front, in a discussion of the incredible journey of Arthur ‘Clifford’ Kimber from the sunny optimism of springtime California in 1917 to the dank autumnal mists of northern France in 1918. Weaving Kimber’s vivid letters into the larger story of the U.S. involvement in the war, this event provides a fresh glimpse of one soldier’s wartime experience. Cash bar/small plates begin at 6:00 p.m. FREE with RSVP | J.C. Nichols Auditorium
