Silicon Valley Reads Book Talk: Julia Keller, Back Home

Silicon Valley Reads 2013 focuses on the “Invisible Wounds of War.” Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Julia Keller wrote about traumatic brain injury for the Chicago Tribune in 2004. Her awareness of American soldiers returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan with invisible wounds of war inspired her to write Back Home, a novel for grades 5-8 that describes one family’s reaction when Dad returns home with physical and brain injuries. Julia will discuss how and why she wrote the book—and also will answer questions about her popular recent mystery novel for adults, A Killing in the Hills.

Join us for this special Silicon Valley Reads book talk on Tuesday, March 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the Central Park Library Cedar Room.
