Local Author to discuss her WWII Spy Thriller, Apr. 14, at UMD 

Local author Ingrid Waldron will read from her recent novel The Year of D-Day at the UMass Dartmouth Library at 7 p.m., April 14. 

The event, which will be held in the first floor Browsing Area, is free and open to the public. Parking is in lot 13. For more information, call 508-999-8946. 

A resident of Little Compton, RI and a graduate of UMass Dartmouth and the Southern New England School of Law, Waldron has written a novel about the French Resistance during World War II that is part mystery, part spy thriller. Mysterious words scribbled on the back of an old photograph lead central character Elaine Beaumont to uncover the truth about her father’s death in France on the brink of D-Day. Secret codes, shifting loyalties, and night flights over enemy-occupied France provide the backdrop for The Year of D-Day. 

Ron Montana, author of The Cathedral Option and Face in the Snow described The Year of D-Day as “fast paced… well written…compelling.” “D-Day and its preparation are seen in a different, realistic and fascinating way,” noted another reviewer. 

After a nostalgic audio introduction to the period, Waldron will read passages from the novel, answer questions, and sign copies of her book. To commemorate the 60th anniversary of “the year of D-Day,” members of the audience will be invited to share their own memories of that historic event. 

Waldron is a pilot and has written a travelogue, Tramping in the Bulk Trade, about a freighter voyage, and articles for Atlantic Flyer and Flight Training. She has traveled extensively in France. 

Copies of The Year of D-Day will be available for sale at the event. The novel is also available at local bookstores; or online at Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, and Xlibris.com; or by phone at 1-888-795-4274 ext. 276.
