At Wellesley Books, 82 Central Street Wellesley, MA 02482
Presentation, Q & A, and book signing
This election season join us at Wellesley Books for a timely discussion by celebrated writer and former Regis College Professor of political science Marguerite Bouvard. Marguerite reads from her empathetic, non-political book on the anguish American soldiers and their families face when returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
ABOUT THE BOOK
INVISIBLE WOUNDS OF WAR brings to the foreground the damages of war and the effects on our soldier’s psyche. Issues of adequate health care, homelessness and grief only understood by fellow soldiers, will be discussed after Marguerite’s reading.
