Holiday Open House with Special Guest Matthew Litt

Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum
Independence, MO

Saturday, December 15, 2018 - 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Stop by the Museum for warm beverages and holiday treats! Then at 2:00pm, Matthew Litt will discuss his bestselling non-fiction book, Christmas 1945 - The Greatest Celebration in American History.

In December 1945, WWII was finally over and the country was ready to celebrate after four dark holiday seasons. This book tells the true stories of that holiday season. Some will make you smile, some will make you cry - all will restore your American and holiday spirit and your faith in humankind. Matthew will sign copies of his book after the presentation.
