Press 53 Promotes Books for Soldiers

Our friends at Press 53 are running the following special promotion. Buy a book from a North Carolina press today, and give something to the men and women in the armed forces:

For every book you purchase on our website from Memorial Day weekend until Flag Day (June 14), Press 53 will send, at no additional cost to you, a book to an active-duty overseas soldier or to a recovering soldier in a military hospital. Buy a book for yourself or someone you love and we’ll do the rest. We’ve got lots of titles that are perfect for a summer read, and perfect for someone far away from home or on the mend before returning home. Visit and choose from dozens of titles from our award-winning writers. Need help selecting a book? Call Kevin at 336-770-5353 or e-mail Help us bring a little bit of home to our soldiers.

You can buy books from NCWN members such as Malaika King Albrecht (What the Trapeze Artist Trusts), Marjorie Hudson (Accidental Birds of the Carolinas), and Valerie Nieman (Blood Clay).
