Turner will discuss his book Lost Boys of the River Camp. Over a century ago, the civilian-backed Junior Naval Reserve established its first summer station in Uncasville, Connecticut. The river camp sought to prepare our nation’s youth for service in the navy or merchant marine. This is an imaginative story capturing a forgotten piece of Connecticut military history. As a historical novel, it offers a seamless blend of fact and fiction and a thought-provoking portrait of junior midshipman training during WWI. Copies of his book will be available for purchase and signing.
