A panel talked about the book, The War, published by Knopf. Based on the PBS documentary film of the same name directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, The War offered a ground-level view of World War II, intertwining stories of service from four American towns: Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama; Luverne, Minnesota; and Sacramento, California. Lynn Novick, associate producer Sarah Botstein and veteran Walt Chamberlin participated in the panel discussion. Ward Chamberlin, who drove an ambulance with the American Field Service, talked about his experiences in the war and about filming with Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. Panelists responded to questions from the audience. close
