A riveting collection of thirty-eight narratives by American soldiers serving in Afghanistan, Outside the Wire offers a powerful evocation of everyday life in a war zone. Christine Dumaine Leche—a writing instructor who left her home and family to teach at Bagram Air Base and a forward operating base near the volatile Afghan-Pakistani border—encouraged these deeply personal reflections, which demonstrate the power of writing to battle the most traumatic of experiences. Dr. Leche will be speaking and signing books at two events in early April:
Wednesday, April 3, 7 p.m. at Book People, Austin, TX
Friday, April 26, 7 p.m. at Brazos Bookstore, Houston, TX
Outside the Wire: American Soldiers’ Voices from Afghanistan is available now.
