Last week I had the pleasure of addressing students at Cheshire Academy, a college preparatory school located in Cheshire, CT, about Odd Nansen and his WWII diary. After the presentation the students asked many pertinent and probing questions, and I thoroughly enjoyed the encounter.
Wendy Swift, Director of The Center for Writing at Cheshire, commented: “Mr. Boyce’s warm and enthusiastic style made his presentation meaningful for high school students just learning about the impact of WWII. He supplied details and facts not typically found in textbooks or other sources and found ways to connect those events to present day conditions. I highly recommend Mr. Boyce as a speaker.”
Many thanks to Wendy for organizing the event, and especially to my friend and colleague Lisa Genden (whose daughter Zoe attends Cheshire), who was instrumental in connecting me with Wendy.
