Interesting program

While this is not specifically a teen program, we feel that some teens may have an interest in it, both from a personal and an historical point of view. Some of you are considering careers in the military; some of you have brothers or sisters who have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan; and some of you may also be or know someone who suffers from PTSD for another reason.

If your teacher has offered extra credit for attending this program, please be aware that the proof of attendance slips will be distributed at the end of the program (but before the book-signing).

7:00pm - 8:30 p.m.
Buena Vista Branch Library

Author David J. Morris will discuss his memoir, The Evil Hours: A Biography of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Mr. Morris draws on his own battles with post-traumatic stress (as a former Marine infantry officer and reporter in Iraq) to explain the disease from a personal perspective. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and author signing, and refreshments will be served.

The Burbank Public Library has invited Mr. Morris to appear here to celebrate its creation of a special collection of books for veterans, which will be available in late February at the Central and Buena Vista Branches. This collection was made possible by a generous donation from the Friends of the Burbank Public Library.
