Cover of Turkey-13 Bio Book
News of Groups
Kent Haruf's final book published posthumously
From Sandy Anderson: "Kent Haruf, T-8, was a good writer, and recognized
author. I've compared him to Faulkner in terms of his feelings for and
insight into his community. Others see Willa Cather (My Antonia). His
language is straight-forward within space, much like life on the Great
Plains in the north-eastern corner of Colorado. Kent died last fall, and
they have recently printed an unpublished book of his, Our Souls at
book review is at the Washington Post, and I copied
the photo also from the Post."
Turkey-13's Bio Book
As you've read in Buralarda, the Turkey-13's put together a
beautiful bio book with write-ups from each of their members. We're
providing examples from their book in hopes that other groups will decide
to do something similar.
