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

Join us as we talk about a book that The Sunday Telegraph has named one of the 5 Best in Modern War Fiction. 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. The New York Times Book Review opined that Hoffman "writes with a restraint that makes poetry of pain" in this novel about the internal struggles that continue for the soldier long after the war.
