a final appeal
November 13, 2012Veteran's Day. How does war, any war, affect the generation that fights it and what affect does it have on the next generation? My barely five foot, 100 pound mother signed up to be a Marine, out of desperation when Tom, whom she had planned to marry, was shot down and killed on his first mission in New Guinea early in World War II. She served two years. My father served three and a half years in North Africa and Italy. When they died, my parents' nearly 2,000 letters came to me. Based on these letters, I've put together a book, What There Was Not To Tell, that tries to answer this question. The book is very close to finished. Help me finish this and publish it. Time on this campaign is short now. Just FIVE days to go before Indiegogo (a wonderful online arts funding organization) takes it off their site. Here's the link: http://www.indiegogo.com/edieclark
I need another $2,000 to reach my goal.
You can also see more about this book in the "Books" section of my website.
I'm very grateful to all those who have helped and regret having to ask for further funds to make this possible. But I have not yet reached my goal. Please forgive but I believe in this book. If you do not want to pledge online, you are welcome to send me a check in any amount. Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested in the subject or in my work.
