Memorial Day is observed each year to remember the men and women who died while serving in the armed forces. KDL has prepared a list of recent books, both nonfiction and fiction, that have to do with the impact of war on those who served, and on their loved ones whose lives have been changed by separation and loss. Check out the list here.
Other lists of recommended reading having to do with wars are also available. Check out the booklists for American Wars of Manifest Destiny, World War I and World War II. Many books are also available for downloading to your eReader or tablet by visiting ebooks.kdl.org, and doing a search for an individual book or a keyword search for “war” or “soldiers.”
In honor of Memorial Day, Kent District Library will be closed on Monday, May 26.
