Alicia Toczek sent this note back with the book “Women in Space” which she had donated: “In 1984, we honored women and I spent the day with Bonnie Dunbar as her hostess when she spoke in Denver. We were to have Sally Ride but she went up in space so NASA sent Bonnie. It was a wonderful experience.”
This would be a great book to read for #nonfictionnovember
Books are wonderful. They may introduce you to a time and a subject completely new to you or they may bring back special memories. Delores Robinson sent a note back with a wonderful WWII story: “I was born in December 1938. Don’t remember the war but I do remember a big bonfire and dancing in the street at O’Neill when it was over.”
Mrs. Chilewski read the note and said she remembered the trains in Sacramento being full of soldiers and equipment and how they would stop occasionally to let soldiers off at the end of the war.
Susan La Flesche led an amazing and inspirational life as a doctor, counselor, and minister to her people. The author does an impressive job of detailing how a young woman from the Omaha tribe gained the trust of those around her to finance her education and to provide care and comfort to her community at great cost to her own personal health. #nonfictionnovember Stop in and pick up a great Nonfiction book today!
