If you are looking for a thrilling and inspirational story, look no further than Unbroken – our 2014 selection for Fullerton Reads.
In past years, Fullerton Reads has examined books and themes that have taken us to other parts of our country, other parts of the world, and even up into the sky. Last year, we had the opportunity to explore a book set in our own backyard.
This year, we are going back to World War II to meet what has been called “The Greatest Generation.” Unbroken is about the life of Olympic running Louis Zamperini, who became an airman during the Second World War. The story takes us through his journey into extremity as he fights to stay alive after a plane crash in the Pacific Ocean. Unbroken tells the story of one man’s personal experience of the resilience of the human body, soul, spirit, and mind.
Although Unbroken is not aimed at children, we will have programming for all ages. We hope to see you at one – or more – of these events!
