On June 6, 1944, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of the French coastline, to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end, the Allies gained a foot-hold in Europe marking a major turning point in World War II.

That’s right! Now adults (age 18+) have their very own reading challenge this summer too! For reading or listening to any four books between May 27th and August 2nd, adults win a coupon for a free bagel from Panera Bread, and will be entered automatically to win one of 185 awesome prizes!
We want to especially encourage our adult learners to sign up for this great opportunity! Let us know if you complete the Summer Reading Program (be sure to send us your reading log!), and the Literacy Office will send you a $5 gift card for QuikTrip!
I’m someone who believes that fiction can lead a person to Truth more than any other medium.

I had also seen the movie version. The character of Laura Brown haunted me.
