MATTOON – A book discussion on Freedom’s Forge, a book about industry and World War II, is set for 1:30 p.m. Thursday on the first floor of the Mattoon Public Library.
This is the fourth time a group interested in World War II-era books has hosted a facilitated discussion at the library.
Author Arthur Herman describes in the book how businessmen joined the wartime
production by turning their factories into facilities to produce items in support of the war.
Carolyn Cloyd is facilitating the discussion.
