Lecture and book signing by the author Peter Lion

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.5.3″ text_font_size=”20px”]It’ s December 1944, and knowing they would not be home for Christmas, battle weary GIs throw a holiday party for the children of Wiltz, Luxembourg. Ten days later the town is all but destroyed during the Battle of the Bulge. Wiltz however never forgot the kindness of the Americans and for 30 years searched for the GIs in hopes of bringing them back once more. This is that incredible story, told by author Peter Lion.

Peter Lion is a seven-time Emmy-winning television producer/director with a love of writing. His second book, “MERG”, also a WWII story, was released in 2019. Lion and his wife live in Connecticut.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
