Gary Lawless, My Kind of Soldier
On the Buffalo Poetics listserv, CA Conrad, Stephen Vincent, and others have been talking war and the impact on our soldiers. From Stephen Vincent's post, we learned from a Washington Post story that Gary Lawless, the owner of Gulf of Maine Books in Brunswick, Maine, is conducting writer's workshops for war veterans, in his words, "to get their stories literally out of their bodies, so they're not carrying them around by themselves." Thank you, Gary Lawless.
