Claremont, Calif. (March 23, 2015)—Pitzer College Assistant Professor Emerita Jacqueline Levering Sullivan’s book, Annie’s War, will be included in new World War II exhibition, Walla Walla Goes to War at the Kirkman House Museum in Walla Walla, Washington. The exhibition runs through September 8, 2015.
Walla Walla Goes to War looks at World War II from a local perspective. This exhibit addresses the treatment of African American servicemen and women during the war, focusing on their experiences living in segregated bases and the intolerance they found in the town itself.
Annie’s War, Levering Sullivan’s first published novel, is based on events from the writing professor’s childhood in the 1940s. The novel was a finalist for the 2009-10 Children’s Crown Award. She also received the 2009 Kentucky Bluegrass Master List Award.
At Pitzer College, Jacqueline Levering Sullivan taught writing, and she founded and directed the College’s Writing Center.
