Lunch in Time: “One Thousand Miles: Following My Father’s WWII Footsteps”

Sep 20th, 2017 12:00pm - Sep 20th, 2017 1:00pm

Hampton History Museum
Free Admission

Presbyterian minister and author Matt Matthews presents the story of his father’s World War II experiences in battle and as a POW in the book One Thousand Miles: Following My Father’s WWII Footsteps, the subject of his talk for the Hampton History Museum’s free Lunch in Time Series program on Wednesday, September 20, noon-1:00 p.m. In the summer of 2011, Matthews, his wife, and three boys traced his late father’s World War II footsteps the thousand or so miles from where he was captured in Germany during the Battle of the Bulge to the Clyde River in Glasgow, near where he and 10,000 other seasick American GIs arrived on the RMS Aquitania. Sixty-seven years after his father’s journey, Matthews unwraps spiritual insights about loss, fatherhood, and overlooked graces of daily life.
