Author Talk with Len Sandler » 6:30 p.m. at the Meeting House
Local author Len Sandler will join us to discuss his book "Because of You, We Live!: The Untold Story of George & Simone Stalnaker"
Simone de Cruzel, a defiant 19-year-old socialite living on the French Riviera and daughter of a Provincial Court Judge, is a spy for the British with the code name of "SISTER". Meanwhile, a brash American from Iowa and son of a preacher, George Stalnaker graduates from West Point and earns his wings. After quickly rising to the rank of Lt. Colonel and completing 35 combat missions, he is given the critical assignment of destroying the last remaining bridge the Germans could use to reinforce their troops at Normandy.
George and Simone may be people born worlds apart but they are alike in one important way – heroism is in their DNA. This is the epic true story of how this remarkable couple manages to survive, meet, and fall in love.
