Holiday Book Drive for Our Troops


Novelist Paul Malmont is launching a holiday book and audiobook drive to send books to our troops overseas through Operation Warrior Library.
Malmont explained in an email: “We’re starting a new effort to raise some books for a holiday delivery to troops. We’re looking for boxes of new books from authors and publishers–audio books are particularly welcome to injured soldiers in hospitals.  If anyone is interested they can reach out to uswarriorlibrary [at] gmail [dot] com.”
Organized by Malmont and Col. George Reynolds, this literary supply chain has shipped hundreds of books to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Visit Operation Warrior Library for more information.
