Acworth Bookstore will hold a book signing Saturday July 22nd from 1 to 5 PM. Jack Smith and Rona Simmons will be available to discuss their collaboration “Images from World War II: The Art of Jack Smith” and sign books. The event is free and open to the public.
Images from World War II contains 36 unique black and white images of brush and ink paintings by Jack Smith, WWII veteran and commercial artist. Through its iconic images and accompanying text, the book is a story of heroism and patriotism, of the stress of combat, and of the staggering loss of life and materiel on both sides of the war.
Author Rona Simmons worked with Jack to research and write brief descriptions of the images and the Pacific battles which they portray. Together Ms. Simmons and Mr. Smith hope to enable broader
distribution and enjoyment of Mr. Smith’s remarkably detailed paintings and to encourage readers to deepen their understanding of the War in the Pacific.

The Atlanta World War II Round Table was organized in 1986 to hear and record the war experiences of World War II and to pass on to posterity the knowledge of World War II and the price – human and material – that was paid by our nation for the preservation of freedom in the United States and the world.
The uniqueness of the organization, which meets on the third Thursday of each month, September through June, is the diversity of its membership. There are retired Army Generals, Navy Captains, Air Force Pilots, Master Sergeants, Navy Chiefs, and most importantly, the Buck Privates, the Navy Seamen and Air Force enlisted men and women who were and are the backbone of all military branches. Each month, these individuals meet to share their personal stories. They are no longer separated by rank or seniority since all are “seniors”. They meet as friends and comrades with a common story to share and remember.
The next meeting is scheduled for April 20th. For more info, check out their website at http://www.atlantawwiiroundtable.org/profile.htm
