TRUMBULL, Conn. --- Hamish Lutris, associate professor of history at Housatonic Community College, will discuss the battle of Saint-Malo in a lecture at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Trumbull Historical Society.

The talk is sponsored by the Trumbull Library as part of the "One Book, One Town" program. Anthony Doerr's 2015 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "All the Light We Cannot See," is the Trumbull Library's "One Book, One Town" selection for 2016.

The Battle of Saint-Malo in August 1944 was a small struggle within a larger fight -- the Allied breakout from Normany after D-Day.

The popular seaside tourist town, built in the early middle ages out of stone and known as a haven for French privateers, was fiercely held by the Germans in the summer of 1944.

Its subsequent bombardment by U.S. forces plays an integral role in Doerr's book.

The Trumbull Historical Society is at 1856 Huntington Turnpike.
