Lunch & Learn: Sacramento During WWII

Lunch & Learn: Sacramento During WWII

November 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

$8 - $10

Join James Scott, local historian, author and Sacramento Room librarian, for an exciting talk about Sacramento’s role in the changing landscape of war.

Not long after surviving the Great Depression, Sacramento would find itself thrust into the Second World War. The Capital City’s ability to accelerate agricultural production, produce a robust plan for civil defense and industrial mobilization became the stuff of legend while xenophobia and internment offered a heartbreaking reprise of the city and country’s dark habits from WWI.

Escaped POWs and Mather Field’s brush with altering history will also be addressed!

Thursday, November 9th
12:00-1:30 p.m. in Room 10
Fees: $8/ in advance; $10/ at the door

Lunch is generously provided by Eskaton Monroe Lodge.

Lunch & Learn is a new quarterly series where we team up with different organizations and professionals to provide hour-long presentations on a variety of topics, all in the name of education & enrichment!
