Denise D’Angelo Jones is proud to announce the release of her book, “Spanish Influenza: Nineteen Days in 1919”. The literary work is an account of events over 100 years ago, during the Spanish Flu.
The book contains information recorded by Hilda Dorothea Zapf, who lived in Mendota, Illinois from 1899-1994. For 88 years, she recorded detailed accounts of her life in volumes of diaries hidden away in one of the closets underneath the steps of her Indiana Avenue home.
When Denise mother passed away in 2019, she left her aunt’s diaries to her care. During the COVID-19 stay-at-home order, Denise revisits the diaries and found similarities in the Spanish Influenza and COVID-19 pandemic currently ravaging the world.
