This book by Wisconsin writer/actor/producer Coleman looks like a terrific late summer read.
Midwest Book Review says Spoke is a “weighty, evocative memoir … skillfully plotted … . Skillfully penned to be of equal interest to those who lived through and who were born after Vietnam. And a compelling witness to a definitive era, richly compounded in complexity by true-life family sorrow and triumph.”

Every subject in the subtitle of this book — A Mother. A Son. Civil Rights. Vietnam — are tops on my list of interests.
Published by Little Creek Press, Spoke is due out the end of August.
