The next meeting of the World War II Book Club will be Tuesday October 21, 2014, as usual at the Millburn Library, 200 Glen Avenue Millburn, NJ. The lecture will commence at 7 p.m.

Our speaker will be Harvey J. Kaye, the Ben & Joyce Rosenberg Professor of Democracy and Justice at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Professor Kaye is an award winning author of numerous books, including Thomas Paine and the Promise of America.  He is also a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post and the Daily Beast and a repeat guest on radio and television programs such as To the Best of Our Knowledge, the Thom Hartmann show, and Bill Moyers Journal.

Harvey Kaye will talk about his award winning book, The Fight For The Four Freedoms-What Made FDR and the Greatest Generation Truly Great. Steve Lomazow and John McLaughlin heard him speak at the FDR Library June 21, 2014. Describing the lecture as "spellbinding" may seem an exaggeration, but not in this case and Steve and John immediately booked Kaye to present for the Book Club. Harvey asked them what he should talk about and they both said, "...just repeat what you said today, and don't change anything!"

Praise for the book has been forthcoming from many sources: Bill Moyers said he "...tells a spirited story...", and we agree. His book will be offered for sale and signature at the bargain price of $20.
