Monica Haller's book Riley and His Story, Me and My Outrage, You and Us has been hard to get a hold of. But M&Q has managed to get hold of copies.
In 2005, artist Monica Haller, Iraq war veteran Riley Sharbanno, and graphic designer Matthew Rezac began to organize Sharbanno's photographs from his tour as a nurse at Abu Grahib prison. Three years later, their project became the book Riley and His Story, Me and My Outrage, You and Us, a gripping and challenging exploration of combat, trauma, and memory. It's a fascinating book. Come check it out today.
But wait, there's more... You can meet Monica Haller on Friday, May 28, 7:30pm. She'll be at Open Book, in conversation with photographer Wing Young Huie. They'll be discussing collaboration in their work. Don't miss it. Details are here.--David E
