Author to discuss book Friday

TISKILWA — Author Tim Pletkovich will speak about his book, “Nuns, Nazis and Notre Dame,” at 1:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7 at the Tiskilwa Public Library.

In his second book, Pletkovich examines the early life of U.S. Army veteran Gerald A. O’Reilly, who was raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., during the 1920s and 1930s, attended Notre Dame during the coach Frank Leahy era, and served in the 10th Mountain Division in Italy during World War II.

Pletkovich’s first book was “Civil War Fathers: Sons of the Civil War in World War II.” Both books will be available for purchase at the Dec. 7 event.
