Broadcast - September 22, 2012 - Kevin Powers "The Yellow Birds"
Tune into Book Talk this week as Stephen Usery interviews Kevin Powers about his bestselling debut novel, The Yellow Birds. It's the story of young soldiers serving in Iraq in 2004 and 2005. Something terrible has happened, and we see the psychological effects afterwards and the circumstances leading up to the event. Both poetic and unflinching, The Yellow Birds is one of the best reviewed debuts of the year. Kevin Powers on this week's Book Talk, Saturday evening at 6:00 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. on FM89.3 WYPL Memphis.
