Author William Geroux will discuss his book, “The Mathews Men: Seven Brothers and the War Against Hitler’s U-Boats” on April 5 at 7 p.m. at the Hudson Library & Historical Society.
The book tells the fascinating true story of seven U.S. merchant marine brothers who found themselves as targets of U-boats off the coast of the United States during World War II. Kirkus called it “poignant…a deep, compassionate group biography of these ‘unsung heroes’ of the Merchant Marines.”
Geroux wrote for the Richmond Times-Dispatch for 25 years. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Associated Press, and various regional magazines. He also has worked for Maersk, the largest container-shipping company in the world.
Copies of “The Mathews Men” will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of the Learned Owl Book Shop. Register for this free program online at hudsonlibrary.org or call 330-653-6658 ext. 1010.
