The Canandaigua Letters

A member of the CA Class of 1967 will be introducing his book “The Canandaigua Letters, A Memoir of the late 60’s” at a book launch on May 22nd at The Ontario County Historical Society. William Winship, formerly of Canandaigua, wrote this book from letters he sent home while stationed in the Korean DMZ. This is a coming-of-age recollection that many of us can relate to having grown up in that time period.

“The title of this memoir was prompted by the discovery of a tightly rubber-banded cache of letters written half a century ago – correspondence penned by the author to his family in Canandaigua.”

“Far more than simply a military memoir, “The Canandaigua Letters” frames a classic coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of Canandaigua in the late ’60s amid the ferment of war protests and the emergence of the counter-culture that defined the Vietnam years.”
