FIVE CAME BACK:  A STORY OF HOLLYWOOD AND THE SECOND WORLD WAR by Mark Harris
Monday, March 16 / 6:00 p.m.

Dennis McMullen and David Swaldo, Sandusky Library, discussion leaders
In Pictures at a Revolution, Harris turned the story of the five movies nominated for Best Picture in 1967 into a landmark work of cultural history, a book about the transformation of an art form and the larger social shift it signified. In Five Came Back, he achieves something larger and even more remarkable, giving us the untold story of how Hollywood changed World War II, and how World War II changed Hollywood, through the prism of five film directors caught up in the war: John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens. Stop by the Readers’ Advisory Desk to pick up a copy of the book or audiobook. This book is also available as an eBook.
