Strong Military Sisterhood At the Center of New Novel

 

Author Alicia Dill joined the military at the age 17, just weeks before the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York City. Suddenly, her world changed. Dill spent the next six years as a Public Affairs Specialist for the National Guard, through which she was eventually deployed to Kosovo for 14 months.

On this hour of Talk of Iowa, Host Charity Nebbe and Dill discuss "Squared Away," Dill's first novel, which is inspired by her time in the military.

Dill will be reading from "Squared Away" at Prairie Lights in Iowa City on July 2 and at M and M Bookstore in Cedar Rapids on July 6.
