What We're Reading with Tammy Bobrowsky

University of MN Press
MNN Author Catherine Madison

KAXE/KBXE has a community on Facebook called What We're Reading.  You can find out information about the KAXE bookclub, ask a question or post what you are reading.  Tammy Bobrowsky produces the Monday morning segment that gives us ideas on what to read.  Today one of the books she mentions is from the U of MN Press, "The War Came Home With Him".  

“Madison, former editor in chief of the Utne Reader, has transformed her meticulous research into the Korean conflict and her father’s written account of his imprisonment into a remarkable memoir. It should be lauded for its unflinching honesty as Madison recalls the harrowing moments in her complicated relationship with her sometimes steady, often volatile father.”
— Carol Memmott, Star Tribune
