Join us for our quarterly Nonfiction Book Club discussion at 6 p.m. at Fresh Digs. We'll be reading Pumpkin Flowers: A Soldier's Story by Matti Friedman. Book reviewers have noted: “A book about young men transformed by war, written by a veteran whose dazzling literary gifts gripped my attention from the first page to the last.” —The Wall Street Journal
“Friedman’s sober and striking new memoir . . . [is] on a par with Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried -- its Israeli analog.” —The New York Times Book ReviewSponsored by Effingham Public Library.
