Book covers


I’ve been silent here a while, but <she says, brightly> I have an excuse! I contributed to a book.

For the past year and a half I’ve been writing essays for an examination of gender, race, identity, culture, and ethnicity in the military family for a publication by the Museum of the American Military Family. The museum is near Albuquerque, New Mexico, but we writers are scattered across the country.

The book, E Pluribus Unum: GRAICE Under Pressure, is an examination of gender, religion, race, identity, culture, and ethnicity in the military family.

The project, led by Dr. Circe Olson Woessner, founder and director of the Museum, is in the final stages and should be released in July of this year. I’m happy to have been a writer in residence as a part of the project.

E Pluribus Unum: GRAICE Under Pressure

A few weeks ago, a (seemingly) short-lived meme circulated on Facebook: book covers. The instructions were to share seven book covers without explanation, rating, or reviewing the contents — sort of Pinterest meme.

I played along, but then thought about the number of books I have. It seemed that I could get more mileage out of the meme — and dust behind many of the books — by using the book cover idea to jump-start the blogging (again) during this bleak season.

So, without further ado, the first in the blogged book cover series.  <insert happy face>
