Comes with a few speaking engagements, and a little money, but the coolest part is that all freshman at Mass Bay College in Fall 2017 / Spring 2018 will have to read Civilianized. They also buy copies for all faculty and staff to read and do it in conjunction with the Wellesley Free Library and get the whole town reading/enjoying it. “One Book, One Community,” type of thing.
If you’ve read the book, you’ll know that it’s dark, and a little humorous, and will definitely lead to some interesting conversations around campus and in the Wellesley community.
If you haven’t checked Civilianized out yet, definitely give it a read: Civilianized: A Young Veteran’s Memoir.
