Reception for Personal  Narratives of the First World War @ Z. Smith Reynolds Library WFU | Winston-Salem | North Carolina | United States

Please join Special Collections & Archives and Piedmont Opera as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entrance into World War I. This will be an opportunity to view the SCA exhibit “Testaments of War: World War I in Literature, Art, and Memoir” which includes rare items from the collection.

Please come and learn more about other collaborative programming being offered this fall, including additional SCA exhibits and Piedmont Opera’s performances of the World War I opera “Silent Night.” Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize in Music, the opera is based on historical events and depicts a spontaneous 1915 Christmas truce between combatants on the Western front.s
