The Friends of the Grand Island Memorial Library will present a review of the book, “Unbroken: A World War II story of survival, resilience and redemption,” by Lauren Hillenbrand. The book tells the true story of Louis Zamperini, an Olean native and Olympic runner who was stranded on a raft for 47 days after a plane crash who was then rescued, only to spend the next two and a half years as a prisoner of war in Japan.

The free program will be held Thursday at 7 p.m. in the library meeting room, 1715 Bedell Road. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call 773-7124.
