Charles Rice is 80 years old. For 30 years he served as a volunteer firefighter and he helped usher in the age of the EMT. I’m glad he captured this history in Last Call. There is a very helpful review here (scroll down). More info here.
I met Tom Rivers in a blur on one of my book tour stops, and he handed me his Farm Hands. It’s a front-line report from the fields where he worked side by side with immigrant laborers.
And finally, because I always tell folks you just have to keep shoveling, I’m happy to report that when I met Kathy Bricetti at the Bread Loaf Writer’s Conference many years ago, she said she was working on a memoir. Blood Strangers is out now, and Kathy, I’m proud to say we workshopped together way back when.
