Spend your lunchtime at the Museum, learning about interesting and sometimes unexpected aspects of history. For their January 17 program, they are happy to welcome Liz Williams, author of "No Ordinary Soldier." Thirty-three years after her father's death, Liz Wiliams delves into his letters and photos from World War II, seeking to solve a mystery: What caused his terrifying rages? The letters lead her to uncover a spellbinding look at Hawaii's transformation from island paradise to war zone, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and his combat duty on other Pacific battlegrounds. Amid her quest, Liz stumbles upon a shocking family secret that the letters also imply that her father waged two wars - one of them with himself, as some wars are waged in secret.
Programs run from Noon until 1:00pm, and they are free to museum members and included with your regular admission for other guests.
