Kennedy Featured in Bombshells
Jeffe Kennedy in Laramie e-mailed wyolitmail to announce that her piece "Inheritances" appears in the new anthology, Bombshells: War Stories and Poems by Women on the Homefront from OmniArts Publishing. The book, edited by Missy Martin and Jesse Loren, is available for $12.95 at your favorite bookstore. Jeffe is a roster artist for the Wyoming Arts Council. She received the WAC's 2005 Frank Nelson Doubleday Memorial Writing Award and a 2007 WAC creative writing fellowship. Here's a jacket blurb from Joseph Boyden, author of Three Day Road: "Bombshells is simply brilliant and absolutely timely. Powerful, direct, beautiful, complex, tough, and always engaging. This is a must read for anyone wanting to understand the real price of war. I urge you to read this haunting and fascinating collection." OmniArts is donating a portion of proceeds from the sale of Bombshells to the Fisher House Foundation, an organization that serves hospitalized soldiers and their families.
