In Country: A Novel (Fall 2012 Book Tours Selection) Bobbie Ann Mason


LECTURE, plus AUTHOR Q&A via Skype

Fall 2012 Book Tours Selection

In the summer of 1984, the war in Vietnam came home to 17-year-old Sam Hughes, whose father was killed there before she was born. The soldier-boy in the picture never changed. In a way that made him dependable. But he seemed so innocent.

She stared at the picture, squinting her eyes, as if she expected it to come to life. But her father had died with his secrets. Her uncle, Emmett, was walking around with his. Anyone who survived Vietnam seemed to regard it as something personal and embarrassing. Granddad had said they were embarrassed that they were still alive.

This is an Artful Thursday presentation. The event is free, but tickets are required.
