Today's podcast 03/16/2014

  • Hillenbrand, Laura. UNBROKEN : A WORLD WAR II STORY OF SURVIVAL, RESILIENCE, AND REDEMPTION New York : Random Hosue, 2010 IL AD ISBN 1400064163 This is the extraordinary true story of Louis Zamperini, 1936 Olympic runner and World War II bombardier, who was shot down over the Pacific Ocean flying a mission and didn’t make it home for twenty- seven months. Adrift on a raft, starving, thirsty, and weakened for 47 days he survived only to fall into the hands of the Japanese who imprisoned him for the next two years. Louis suffered physical and mental torture, hunger, extreme cold, illness, and crushing work loads which almost broke him—and yet he survived. Read this, and be inspired by a war hero who was forced to the very limits of human endurance. Winnie Host, Penncrest High School (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2014)
