I’m a World Book Night 2014 Giver
Latest Posts / February 6, 2014

I got the word yesterday afternoon, I will have the honor and privilege to participate in World Book Night 2014 and give out free books. The book I have chosen to give out is Sunrise Over Fallujah by Walter Dean Myers, the description says: Operation Iraqi Freedom, that’s the code name. But Robin Perry, an ambivalent recruit from Harlem, and all his fellow soldiers in the Civil Affairs Battalion have a simpler name for it: WAR. Perry and the rest of his unit soon find their definition of “winning” the war in Iraq ever more elusive and their good intentions being replaced by terms like “survival” and “despair.”

Walter Dean Myers looks at a contemporary conflict with the same power and searing insight he brought to his Vietnam War classic, Fallen Angels. I am very excited about this event, my second. The first was an outstanding success, I had a great time and this year … I think I’ll involve the kids. Zohar – Man of la Book
