War Stories

Incorporating trusted readers'  helpful comments on GRACE and querying YA agents.
The first session of War Stories, a class I conceived and taught at South County Senior Center, is over. Great work by the eight participants. Interesting views about war from non-participants in military, though many had fathers and other relatives who fought in World War II and more recent relatives fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Two lived through World War II in Europe, one in England, twice bombed in the blitz, and one in hiding in Czechoslovakia. The rest of us lived through wars in the US.

I am editing a book of the class's writings appropriate for Memorial Day weekend.
