McGinley’s program will be held at Ocean County Library’s Toms River branch (101 Washington St.)

Each painting in this unique book illustrates a specific event from the Holocaust and WWII in a realistic and dynamic style, and all have a matching narrative gathered over the course of several decades from McGinley’s close friends and acquaintances. The book includes a foreword written by Toms River Township Mayor Thomas F. Kelaher, Lt. Col. USMCR (Ret.)

J. Mark Mutter, Township of Toms River Clerk, RMC and Township of Toms River Historian, along with special guests, will share their own stories from WWII. Books will be available for purchase. A book signing will take place after the program.

McGinley has produced many paintings for the U.S. Air Force and examples of his work are displayed at the Pentagon, West Point, McGuire Air Force Base, and the British War Museum. He has also contributed his artistic talent to benefit the fund raising efforts of such community service organizations as the Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs.
