LITCHFIELD, Conn. - May 6, 2014 - PRLog -- In his latest book, Women’s Work in WWII, aviation historian John Cilio combines photographs and the stories of the women who stepped into jobs with either no experience or minimal training in order to keep America running.  Using documented research, photographs, and antidotal stories, Cilio tells the story of millions of World War II women who worked in thousands of roles from machinery to nursing, carpentry, meterology, farming, and as munitions specialists.  They enlisted in every branch of service available to them and served around the globe bravely and proudly.  From the home front, they helped the war effort and because of their efforts they transformed the workplace.

John Cilio thrives on researching the ghosts of our past, uncovering the underlying forces and historical trends for different eras.  His goal as an author of six historical books is to make history relevant, engaging and enlightening.  John has written over 200 articles and contributed to several books covering everything from Autogiros to Mustangs to secret B-24 missions.  He is an American Marketing Association Silver Effie winner and has spoken to audiences in over sixty countries.

A wine and cheese reception will follow the event.  The author will provide books for signing and for purchase.  All Oliver Wolcott Library events are free and open to the public.  Space is limited.  Registration is required and can be done by calling 860-567-8030 or logging onto www.owlibrary.org and clicking on Programs/Adult Programs.  This event is co-sponsored with the Connecticut Humanities Initiative, CT AT WORK.
