#uucwreads highlights the ways that books are part of our members’ and staff’s lives. Tom Pierce has just read “At Home and At Sea: An American Navy Couple During World War II.” It was written by his friend and fellow military brat (who formerly attended UUCW with his wife Nancy), Royce Singleton, Jr. Royce’s father was a Navy officer who participated in most of the battles in the Pacific. The book consists of letters from Royce’s father to his mother, and vice versa.
