Roanoke native and nationally recognized author Liza Mundy will talk about the top-secret contributions of women in World War II, Wednesday, April 4 at 6:30 pm at Book No Further. Mundy’s bestselling book, Code Girls, tells the story of American women who broke German and Japanese codes in the war but are only now being recognized for their contributions. This is Mundy’s first appearance about the book in the Western Virginia. She will begin the day with a presentation to students at North Cross School, her alma mater. Mundy, a former Washington Post reporter is also the author of “The Richer Sex” and a biography of Michelle Obama. The Washington Post praised Mundy for challenging “the myth of the eccentric, inspired, solitary male genius” of breaking codes, while noting the women’s “postwar job opportunities and their chances for further education under the GI Bill were mixed at best.” The book talk and signing are free. Books are available in advance or day of the event at Book No Further. Book no Further is located at 16 Church Ave. SW, Roanoke, inside 16 West Marketplace. For more information call 540-206-2505 or email info@booknofurther.com.
