The famous Betty Reid Soskin is set to participate in a free book signing and discussion in the Whittlesey Room at Richmond Public Library, 325 Civic Center Plaza, this Thursday, July 19, at 6:30 p.m.
Soskin is an international celebrity, for one as the oldest Interpretive Ranger employed by the National Park Service, who was instrumental in the establishment of Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park in Richmond.
Her book, Sign My Name To Freedom, chronicles 96 years of her incredible life experiences that continue to this day.
Soskin’s presentation will include a lecture and passage readings from her new book. Questions will be encouraged at the conclusion of her presentation. The event is free to the public and wheelchair accessible.
