Annie Laura Smith, author of Twilight of Honor, lectured on her WWII themed novels at the Huntsville Museum of Art on August 25th.
She included her friend and fellow writer, Joe Connaughton, who was a bombardier in the 319th Bomb Group during World War II. Joe provided interesting background material for the bombing missions in Italy and southern France that are background for Annie Laura’s Saving Da Vinci and Alexandra’s Secret. Joe also contributed to the compilation by Harold and Esther Oyster, The 319th in Action, recently published in reprint by The Ardent Writer Press.
The Huntsville Museum of Art showcased the authors as part of their summer exhibition, Memories of World War II: Photographs from the Archives of The Associated Press.
