Author Series 2016

October 25th—Teresa Irish (author of A Thousand Letters Home) a very popular presenter on the library circuit. This will be her first visit to Manistee. On May 26, 2006, one month and one day after her father’s death, Teresa Irish raised the lid on the Army trunk that had resided in the family home her entire life. There, nestled in row after row, were her dad’s nearly 1,000 handwritten letters from World War II. Carefully tucked away and visited only by him over the course of six decades, the letters were postmarked from November, 1942 to December, 1945. In the top left corner of each was the signature of the sender, Aarol W. “Bud” Irish. The fragile and yellowed pages were addressed to Bud’s parents and to the sweetheart who would later become his wife, Elaine Marie Corbat.
