Interview with author of "Kilroy was Here"
By Todd Hatton
Murray, KY – The month of December evokes memories of Christmases or Hanukkahs past for most, but during the Second World War, December also saw the attack on Pearl Harbor and the siege of the 101st Airborne at Bastogne, the Battle of the Bulge, in 1944. Murray author Constance Alexander's new book, Kilroy Was Here, sets one family's memories of the war to narrative poetry, mixed with Roosevelt's speeches, contemporary references, and even a wartime recipe for meatless sausage patties. Constance Alexander came to our studios and spoke with Todd Hatton about where her new book came from, and the effect it's had.
