Writing instructor Christine Leche taught at an American base near the Afghan-Pakistani border. Working with soldiers, she encouraged her students to write as a way to battle the pressure and trauma of their time on the front line. Thirty-nine of those writings became Outside the Wire, a collection of personal narratives written in a war zone.
Leche will be discussing and signing Outside the Wire today at 7 p.m. Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-713-523-0701 or visit brazosbookstore.com. Free.
