The group meets Tuesday, March 24, at 7 p.m. at the library. . Farrell will join the group to talk about her book, which describes the experiences of nurses at Army and Navy hospitals in the Philippines and what happened to them after Dec. 7, 1941 when the Japanese invaded the islands. The nurses became prisoners of war, enduring years of disease and starvation but never forsaking their duty as military nurses in caring for other prisoners. The little-known story of these heroic women is told from interviews with the last surviving nurses, other firsthand accounts and many photographs. According to her website, Farrell is a local author of children's and young adult books and a former journalist with "a pas- sion for stories about people facing great adversity with courage." She has received numerous awards for excellence from the Society of Professional journalists along with two Emmy award nominations. Kirkus review writes of Pure Grit: "They had deployed to the Philippine Islands to enjoy a life'of ease in a tropical paradise. But now, Army and Navy nurses rose to the occasion and learned combat nursing while bombs exploded around them. "When American forces retreated into the jungle, the women went ahead and set up combat hospitals. They were the first large group of American women ordered into combat. When American forces even- tually surrendered on Bataan and Corregi- dor - the women were captured by the Japanese and 77 of them spent three years in prison camps before being liberated by General MacArthur's men in 1945. "The last of the nurses alive, Mildred Dalton Manning, died recently at age 98. I interviewed her for the book before her death. This little known story of courage and sacrifice will renew your faith in the resilience of the hmnan mind, body and spirit." All are welcome to attend Tuesday's discussion at the Cheney library.
