Alien Encounters & Abductions

Anna Cangialosi - Posted on

Alien Encounters and AbductionsEven more mysterious than the reported sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) are the individuals who claim they have been taken aboard UFOs by strange beings - often against their will. Surprisingly, some of these reports come from Michigan residents.

-What kind of unusual experiences are these people claiming happened to them?
-Is there any validity to the incredible claims they make?

Join us to hear accounts of alien encounters and abductions. Evidence supporting or refuting the alien abduction phenomenon will also be considered. Presented by the State Director of the UFO investigative organization MUFON.

This program has been made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Troy Public Library.

One WWII Soldier's Story of War, Love and Life

A Thousand Letters HomeAfter the 2006 death of her father, Bud Irish, a recipient of the Silver Star and the Purple Heart, Teresa Irish found over a thousand letters written to his parents and sweetheart during World War II. Postmarked between November 1942 and December 1945, and accompanied by over 250 photographs, these treasures formed the basis of Teresa’s book, A Thousand Letters Home: One WWII Soldier’s Story of War, Love and Life.

From lonesome moonlit nights listening to the Your Hit Parade to the foxholes and front lines in Germany, this book is trip back in time, and a tribute to the courage of a generation. Sponsored by the Friends of Troy Public Library.
