Ames Sheldon, Author of Eleanor's Wars
Potholes in the Road to Publication (date TBD)
Eleanor, the protagonist of the novel, volunteers to drive an ambulance in France during WWI because she wants to make a difference. However, her wartime experiences are so horrific that she doesn’t want to talk about them. She has PTSD. One of the results of her not talking about her war is that her son enlists to fight in WWII.
The presentation is about 15 years of trying to make a difference by working to get out this anti-war story, from inspiration to winning a national book award.
