Book Club: Be Safe I Love You by Cara Hoffman (Off Campus)

Join us as we talk about a book that the BBC calls "a fierce and nuanced tribute to women warriors." Come discuss this book with the Wright State community at Winan's Fine Chocolates and Coffee at 3510 Pentagon Park Blvd.

About the book: A classically trained singer returns home from a tour of duty in Iraq to find that her family’s and friends’ lives have continued without her. In fact, things have improved for her family since she’s been gone. It’s clear, though, that all is not well with Lauren in her return to civilian life. This novel confronts the internal struggles and the war that continues for the soldier long after returning home.
