Brown Bag Book Club

May 27, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am

Cover of the book Code Talker featuring a man holding an assault rifle and a tank from WWII. Code Talker: The First and Only Memoir by One of the Original Navajo Code Talkers of WWII by Chester Nez

To honor those who have served and those who still serve, IAIS’ book club will read Chester Nez’s memoir retelling his time as a marine in WWII. During the war, the Japanese had managed to break every type of coding used by the United States to send messages. It was only the code developed by Navajo Marines that remained unbroken, without this contribution, victory in the South Pacific could not have been assured. With actual Navajo code and photos from the war, this book gives readers an insight into the conflict that only one who experienced it could provide. Purchase your copy in our Four Directions Gift Shop today!

Included in the price of admission: $10 Adults; $8 Seniors; $6 Children; IAIS Members free.
