The Bennington Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and Bennington Performing Arts Center (BPAC) will co-sponsor “Bennington in WWII: Women and Men who Served” on Sunday, November 14, at 2:00 pm. The event will be staged at BPAC and will feature four readers including Tony Marro, who will read from his book Bennington in World War II, recently published by The History Press. Pictures of the people being described will be displayed on the theater’s screen, accompanied by music from the war years.

The program will also discuss some of the long-term changes brought about by the war including many women taking jobs previously held primarily by men in factories and on farms and the large number of veterans who were able to attend college because of tuition and other benefits provided by the G.I. Bill of Rights.

Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of show required. Mask is required in theater.
