William Anderson is a Michigan-based historian, educator and author. Among his 30 books of biography, history and travel is The World of the von Trapp Family and for children, V is for Von Trapp. The von Trapp story of patriotism, honor and the value of cultural exchange through immigration still resonate today. In his in-person or virtual program, Anderson discusses the background of the Austrian family, their experiences as world-class singers and their current lives in mountains of Vermont.  The Sound of Music is discussed, and the movie’s blend of fact and fiction is explained.  William Anderson is also an author on Facebook.
