Read It Forward With Trent Reedy


Read It Forward is back! You can meet this year’s author, Trent Reedy, at Central Library on November 5 from 7-8 p.m. Reedy wrote his first book, Words in the Dust, while serving in the National Guard in Afghanistan. The 2015 Read It Forward selection, Divided We Fall, also draws on his military experience.

When Daniel Wright enlisted in the Idaho Army National Guard, he swore to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the state of Idaho against enemies, foreign and domestic, and to obey the lawful orders of both the president and the governor. But they have issued conflicting orders. Whom should Daniel obey? The president? The governor? His sergeant? Or is loyalty to family, friends, and fellow soldiers more important?

Part two of the trilogy, Burning Nation is now available for checkout. But fans will have to wait until next summer for the final installment, The Last Full Measure.

Teens (and adults too!) Ask for your FREE copy of Divided We Fall at any St. Louis Public Library location, while supplies last. Click or call 314.539.0332 for more details.
