Mailbox Monday: Landfall and Exit Wounds
Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.
Two books came into my house last week:
Landfall by Ellen Urbani, published by Forest Avenue Press. This novel set during Hurricane Katrina just came out last week and is generating a lot of buzz. People are crazy for it.
Exit Wounds: Soldiers' Stories Life After Iraq and Afghanistan by Jim Lommasson, published by Schiffer Publishing. This is the book that grew out of a collaborative photo and oral history project about the trials of homecoming coordinated between Lommasson and returning veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. It's powerful stuff.
