Lansing author Lara Alspaugh

February 11

Lara shared her journey through her grandmother’s World War II experiences as a Red Cross nurse, the basis for her book, “Love Red“. The memoir is based on her Grandmother’s diary and letters to her family back home. Lara used her grandmother’s written recollections as a jumping-off place, expanding on that information with further research and her own insight. The letters and diary entries cover over two years that Helena Stokes served devastated England and France before she returned home as she and her new husband started their new life after leaving the war behind.
