Two New Titles for Your Joining Forces Bookshelf

January 19, 2015

Wartime, Then and Now

With Phil Klay's Redeployment winning this year's National Book Award for fiction, war seems to have become a hot topic for publishers.  Two new titles are worth special mention:  When Books Went to War by Molly Guptill Manning tells of the importance of books to World War II servicemen and women.  And My Life As a Foreign Country, Brian Turner's new memoir, is receiving great reviews.  Turner previously published two well-received volumes of poetry on his tours of duty in Bosnia and Iraq.  Visit the Joining Forces @ the Library page for more reading list suggestions and program ideas.
