Acworth Bookstore will host a book signing SATURDAY March 2nd. Kendrick Kirk will be signing “Messages in Handlebars: The Youngest Resistance Fighter” on SATURDAY March 2nd from 1 to 5 PM. During World War II, the French Resistance played a vital role in the Allied victory. Supported by Britain’s Special Operations Executive in London, Resistance networks were formed, led, and equipped by SOE agents. This is a true, previously untold story of undaunted resistance to the Nazis. The Auduc family provided essential support to the network formed around Le Mans, France, by an American OSS agent and a French SOE agent. The Auduc’s oldest son, Jean-Jacques, became the youngest Resistance fighter to be awarded the Croix de Guerre. He was also awarded the U. S. Medal of Freedom and the French Legion of Honor for heroism as a 12 year old.
