Sara V. Mosher -- Book LaunchWednesday Nov 07 2012 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium
Launch of Jimmy Muir From Trois-Rivières.
This is the story of a Canadian fighter pilot who flew North American Mustangs during the Second World War with No. 65 (East India) Squadron Royal Air Force. Sara V. Mosher explores Jimmy’s Scottish and French heritage, going on to evoke his boyhood in Québec and his air force training in Canada and England. Historical records and conversations with Jimmy’s fellow pilots guide Sara through the summer of 1944 from D-Day to the Battle of Normandy and then to Operation Market Garden at Arnhem in The Netherlands - a bridge too far.
Inspired by parents who served with England’s Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) and the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF),Sara V. Mosher grew up with a strong desire to remember all those who served in both world wars. When she finished her first book Remember Me: No. 110 (Hyderabad) Squadron Royal Air Force, Sara had no idea that she would soon be captivated by the WWII photograph of a Canadian fighter pilot and drawn to write his story. A writer, researcher, artist and analyst with a passion for people and their history, Sara lives in Winnipeg.
