Author talk with Maureen Hick's

Join us for An author talk with Maureen Hick's!

"When a Buddhist therapist contracts to counsel soldiers around the world, her
ingrained opposition to war initially obstructs her view. Repelled but curious
about military culture, her careful listening to servicemembers and families
leads to empathy and understanding for their challenges. In postings from the
US to Germany to Korea, serving soldiers deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan,
she learns to respect and serve those enduring trauma. When the too-rare
sessions lead to a struggle with depression, she must reach out with letters
to friends. Can a deeper study of Buddhism steady her? The immersion in
military culture grows more savvy, sanguine beliefs — so she might wrest
deep meaning from absurdity."
