Two discussion series on WWI will be held in Middletown this month. Both are once a week for four weeks and are led by Army veteran, historian, and librarian, Arthur Meyers.  Selections from World War One and America: Told by the Americans Who Lived It should be read prior to attending each section. The series will focus on first person accounts of WWI,  the war’s effect on the present, and Middletown native Major Gen. Maurice Rose, commander of the 3rd Armored Division. Both series will meet on Wednesdays, October 4, 11, 18, and 25.
