From History to Hollywood - 51st Annual JCC Book & Arts Fair

2640 N Forest Rd & 787 Delaware Ave, Getzville, New York 14068
Pete Niland grew up knowing about his family’s contribution to WWII and D-Day but never imagined he would one day be invited by Stephen Spielberg to attend the Hollywood opening of Saving Private Ryan, the film based on his father and uncles. Join this very special presentation to learn about the “real” Private Ryan, and this remarkable family.
Niland is a native of Niagara Falls, NY whose love of sports led him to Ithaca College and later to Buffalo State College where he received a Master of Science Education. Now a retired teacher and coach, you can find him most mornings working out at the JCC Fitness Center.
