As part of the July 28 Chesapeake Folk Festival at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels, MD, Vincent dePaul Gisriel, Jr., author of Hearts Away, Bombs Away, will be at the museum from 10am to 5pm to meet the public and sign copies of the book, which is available for purchase at the Museum Store.
Hearts Away, Bombs Away is a true World War II story that takes the reader into a beautiful love story between a World War II hero and the woman he left at home in Baltimore.
The author’s father was a World War II bombardier on a B17 aircraft. After his father’s death and upon hearing stories from his dad’s fellow crew members, the author became very interested in his father’s military record and thus began documenting a good number of his father’s missions over enemy territory.
Gisriel’s parents had corresponded extensively during the war, writing and saving more than 1,000 letters between them. The author discovered a beautiful love story between his parents that just poured off the pages of their letters. Vincent had set out to write a war story, which he did; but he also found a love story that just would not go away, thus Hearts Away, Bombs Away.
CBMM’s Chesapeake Folk Festival celebrates the Bay’s people, arts, work, and bounty with live music all day long, regional foods, hands-on activities with regional craftspeople, small-craft paddling around the harbor, and more.
The event is presented in partnership with Maryland Traditions and is generously sponsored by Maryland Public Television, What’s Up? Publishing, and Pepsi Bottling Ventures. CBMM members, active military families, and children five and under enjoy free admission to the event, with other tickets available at the gate at $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $6 for children between the ages of six and 17.
