West Long Branch:This is the 100th year since World War I. On March 27th at Monmouth University, writer, teacher, scholar, and public speaker, Patricia Klindienst will be talking about letters sent from soldiers during the war.
She will be presenting insights into the role Jewish immigrants played at that time in her staging "Sam and Charlie Go to War." It's a story told from the point of view of two Russian Jewish immigrants in letters they wrote to a pair of sisters in Brooklyn and tells a "behind the history books" version that will charm and delight the audience at Monmouth U.'s campus in the Thomas Edison Hall building along the path from Wilson Hall to the Pollak Theater.
The event starts at 5:00 and finishes up at 7:00 p.m.
Ms. Klindienst is looking forward to an exciting evening with the public as well as MU guests. It promises to be an unusual and entertaining occasion and admission is free.
