Grundy hosts ‘Information Hunters’ event

Author Kathy Peiss will discuss how librarians, soldiers and spies banded together in WWII, on Nov. 11

The public is invited to hear the story of Information Hunters: When Librarians, Soldiers, and Spies Banded Together in World War II Europe with author Kathy Peiss, on Wednesday, Nov. 11, at 6:30 p.m.

Developed in part from a story heard at a family gathering, Peiss “reveals the efforts of American librarians, scholars, and archivists to find and preserve books and documents for national security, military planning, and postwar reconstruction. Working with the military and intelligence agencies, they fostered new approaches to information, pushed for the internationalization of American book collections, and played key roles in the denazification and restitution of book collections after the war.”
