Unwavering Author Event

May 18, 2023

Join the Coronado Public Library, Coronado Cultural Arts Commission, and the Coronado Historical Association for the west coast release of Unwavering: The Wives Who Fought to Ensure No Man is Left Behind.

When some of America’s military men are captured or go missing during the Vietnam War, a small group of military wives become their champions. Never had families taken on diplomatic roles during wartime, nor had the fate of our POWs and missing men been a nationwide concern. In cinematic detail, authors Taylor Baldwin Kiland and Judy Silverstein Gray plunge you directly into the political maneuvering the women navigated, onto the international stage they shared with world leaders, and through the landmark legacy they created.
