To celebrate First Lady Bess Wallace Truman’s 135th birthday, her nephew David Wallace will join us to discuss his new memoir, “I Called Him Uncle Harry.” He will recount anecdotes and share memories of growing up in the Wallace Home with numerous family members. Attendees will get a rare glimpse into the most private world of Harry and Bess with never-before-seen family photos during the time he lived with his “Aunt B” and “Uncle Harry.”

After the program David Wallace will be available to sign his book which will be available for purchase. This event is offered in partnership with the Independence Pioneers Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution and Mid-Continent Public Library.
