PERTH AMBOY—The Perth Amboy Ferry Slip Museum will kick off of their “Sun Day Series” of activities with a talk by legendary journalist Charles Wiley on Sunday, March 21 at 1 p.m. His topic will be “WWII – At Home.”
Wiley is a radio and talk show personality and commentator, with past appearances on CNN Crossfire and C-Span. He is a journalist who has reported from 100 countries, covered 11 wars and has been widely read in the New York Times, U.S. News & World Report, Newsweek and Time as well as foreign news media.
Wiley’s knowledge of World War II is both personal—he joined the USO and entertained at U.S. bases for two years until he was old enough to join the U.S. Navy—and the result of over half a century of in depth study of the war.
His research has taken him to hundreds of battlefields, archives, and museums worldwide. He has interviewed thousands – from average folks to generals and admirals.
The Ferry Slip Museum is located at the foot of Smith Street on the Perth Amboy waterfront. Attendance for the talk is limited and reservations are suggested.
A $5 donation is suggested. For additional information or to reserve seats, call Museum Director/Curator Kathleen DePow at 732-442-5425.
