Museum is seeking stories for two anthologies


Looking for your memories for our new anthology


Author: Penny McCann Pennington

Overview * From Barnes and Noble

“A gifted writer.” Washington Post columnist Leonard Shapiro
“Summer Novel Soars!” Broadway World

After the sudden implosion of her possibly-too-close family, Farley James gives up her dreams to care for her young brother, William, an Autistic Savant. They move into their odd aunt’s decrepit boarding house overlooking the city of Pittsburgh. Over time, the residents of Bridge Manor form a patchwork family, pulling together when tragedy threatens from several directions. By turns hilarious, heartbreaking, and dark, It Burns a Lovely Light will have you reading late into the night.

“A rare and inspirational novel so real and poignant it has the potential to make you review your life, your plans, and your sense of humanity and humility.” Jennifer E. Goldman, She Magazine

“Another talented writer surfaces…I would recommend teenagers read it too.” Genevive Lapham-Cerefice, Newsweek Magazine

“A remarkably moving book.” IndieReader

“Outstanding.” Writer’s Digest

Museum seeks recipes for Cookbook

In preparing for our upcoming 2017 exhibit, HOST NATION HOSPITALITY, we are asking you to contribute a favorite recipe to the accompanying cookbook. We’d like a little story about the recipe ( where you learned to make it, what significance it has, if it’s something you learned to make overseas, etc.) and your connection to the military or DOD family.

An example might be about the German butcher’s wife who took you into the back of the shop to show you how to pound the wiener schnitzel thin, or your neighbor in Japan showing you how to make a local dish. Or…your grandmother’s black-eyed peas salad you recreated, no matter where you were stationed.

Your recipe may be on one of the recipe cards we plan to give away to exhibit visitors and/or included in the cookbook we will sell to support our programs in our museum.

We appreciate your support of the museum and helping us preserve your history…

Currently, we looking for soups, apps and salads and would like submissions to be e-mailed to:

Please put recipe in subject line
