One thing my father has noted about our favorite newspaper’s daily today-in-history feature is, you can just about guarantee something from World War II will be in every single day.
So yes, we could tie in WWII to literature every single day, but it always feels compelling to highlight Pearl Harbor Day not just because it was obviously a huge moment in the conflict, but also because — like many of you — we have an ancestor who specifically remembered hearing the news and being moved to action because of it.
At any rate, the thematic literary content we’re sharing today is from JSTOR, which recently ran a piece on how American librarians helped defeat the Nazis.
