Join us for two exciting events when Berthoud Historical Society member Eric Jensen brings his book, “Forever and a Day — The World War II Odyssey of an American Family” to Berthoud in early March. Just published and now available to readers, Jensen’s book is based on a vast collection of letters exchanged between members of his family during World War II.
The legacy of the Jensen family in Berthoud and the Little Thompson Valley dates back to 1895. The book was recently described as, “the wartime experiences of seven members of his Colorado farm family…is a heart-felt, insightful look into the enormous sacrifices made by individuals from one American family who went off to fight in the largest and deadliest war in history.”
On Saturday, March 7, Jensen will sign books at the Little Thompson Valley Pioneer Museum from 1 to 3 p.m. This will be an informal opportunity to meet the author and purchase a signed book at a cost of $20. The public is invited to attend.
Jensen returns to Berthoud on Wednesday, March 11, at 7 p.m. to speak about the book and its Berthoud connections. This event will be held at the Berthoud Community Center at 228 Welch Avenue. Signed books will be available for a cost of $20 and there will be a suggested donation of $3 (BHS members) and $5 (non-members) for those who attend.
Don’t miss this special opportunity to meet Eric Jensen and purchase a signed copy of “Forever and a Day.” Jensen has specified that a portion of book sales profits from these events will benefit the Berthoud Historical Society.
