Latham residents enjoy Author Series at South Yarmouth Library

A Sunday afternoon Author Series at the South Yarmouth Library made for a special outing for some of our Great Hill residents last month.  At the September 23rd library event, the ladies heard from Massachusetts author Alison O’Leary, who co-wrote a book with Michael J. Tougias entitled So Close to Home. The book is about a family who survived a World War II U-boat attack on the ship Heredia in the Gulf Coast, 50 miles from New Orleans. Alison is a former Boston Globe reporter, freelance writer and editor. The author series was funded by the South Yarmouth Library Association. Special thanks to Latham Adult Services staff member Mike Flanagan who accompanied our residents to the special event. (Mike was the author’s seventh grade history teacher!)
