Join us on Wednesdays at the Onalaska Public Library at 10 am for our Senior Moments series—learning and entertainment for older adults. Our first program is on February 14 with speaker John Armbruster, author of Tailspin.

During World War II, tail gunner Gene Moran fell four miles through the sky without a parachute and lived. Captured by the Germans, he survived a harrowing 18 months as a prisoner of war, including a 600-mile death march in 1945 across Central Europe. Tailspin is his story, and the story of Armbruster himself as he navigates his own trauma and loss.
