This year for Heroes Homecoming we are hosting performance artist Hardin Minor, depicting his grandfather from the trenches of France during WWI writing letters to his girlfriend Kit. Minor discovered nearly 200 letters in the attic of his grandparents' house. From those letters, Minor created and produced a one-man show called "Letters from the Trenches: Dear Kit." Kit was Minor's grandmother. While the audience watches Minor's performance, a slideshow of WWI and family photos play in the background. The performance will take place in the Pate Room of Headquarters Library.
This program is a collaboration with the Cumberland County Library.
