During this talk Linda will outline Joyce Kilmer’s life growing up, those who influenced him, his education and work history as well as his life in Mahwah. She will also cover his conversion to Catholicism from Episcopalianism prior to his enlistment in World War I. The Mahwah Museum is currently paying tribute to Joyce Kilmer.
