Jon Shutt, author of BLOOD RED DAWN will be at the Martha Sawyer Community Library, Tuesday, July 31st  at 7:00 pm.

Jon will have an open reading as well as a book signing.    Mr. Shutt is a teacher in the MSAD60 district.  He has served 10 years in the Army National Guard.

He was deployed in 2004 to Iraq.  In 2009 he was deployed to Afghanistan.  

"After these two tours, it was suggested that he seek counseling for PTSD symptoms.   Instead, he wrote poems.  72 of Jon's poems appear in this collection.  Searing, soaring, gut-wrenching, sardonic, and philosophical  ....  it's hard to read this eloquent work without holding your breath  because of the immediacy with which each poem places you right in the soldier's shoes.  BLOOD RED DAWN will stick with you long after you close its covers."

All proceeds from royalties of BLOOD RED DAWN will be donated to the USO (United Service Organizations).

A copy of this work can be purchased at the event for $12.00.

Come and "Be a Part of it !"
