SHOT DOWN: The true story of pilot Howard Snyder and the crew of the B-17 Susan Ruth

January 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Set within the framework of World War II in Europe, this program recounts the dramatic experiences of each member of a ten man B-17 bomber crew after their plane was knocked out of the sky by German fighters over the French/Belgium border on February 8, 1944. Some men died. Some were captured and became prisoners of war. Some men evaded capture and were missing in action for months before making it back to England. Their individual stories and those of the courageous Belgian people who risked their lives to help them are all different and are all remarkable. Book signing to follow program.
