BookMark: Looking Back At Veterans' Day

November 16, 2005

Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks, published by Vintage (2003) A Month in the Country by J.L Carr, published by Saint Matthews Press (1983). Veteran's Day, which we celebrated last week, used to be called Armistice Day. Nov. 11 is day when, back in 1918, the Allies and the Germans signed the Armistice and the horrors of World War I finally came to an end. Sarah May Clarkson of Juniata College observed Veteran's Day this year by looking back to World War I and its aftermath, as portrayed in two different books.
