Meet the Author Series
Unwavering: A True Story of Accidental Activists Who Galvanized the Nation
Tuesday, May 16 - 7:00pm EST

During our Meet the Author conversation with Taylor Baldwin Kiland and Judy Silverstein Gray shared inspiring stories from their recently released book, Unwavering. The book documents the true personal accounts of POW and MIA military wives who waged an epic battle to ensure their husbands, prisoners in Vietnam, were not left behind.

VOICES Founding Director, Mary Fetchet moderated the conversation and highlighted the many parallels between these powerful women and the 9/11 family members who, despite their loss, turned their grief into advocacy efforts in seeking truth and justice in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks.
