If you’re in the Chicago area please join us December 4 for a free event celebrating the national book release of Standing Down: From Warrior to Civilian. Funded by generous grants from the NEH and the Chicago Mercantile exchange, Standing Down is an eloquent collection that speaks to the transition from military service to civilian life.
The event will take place at Chicago’s beautiful Pritzker Military Library and will include a panel discussion about war and literature. Several authors whose work appears in Standing DownBenjamin Busch, Ed Hrivnak, and Edward Wood Jr.will attend and talk about how their own military experiences shaped their writing. If you know or love a veteran, you should add Standing Down to your reading list and join us December 4!
