Did you know? National Donut Day is celebrated on the first Friday in June. It has roots in World War I, when Salvation Army volunteers known as "doughnut lassies" provided the treats as a comforting reminder of home to the soldiers in France.
For a peek into the past, check out some of these historical fiction novels about volunteers in World War I:
- The Walnut Tree (Todd)
- Daughters of War (The Leonora Trilogy) (Green)
- Somewhere in France (Robson)
- In Falling Snow (MacColl)
