Veterans Day

Korean War memorial, Washington, D.C.November 11 marks the celebration of Veterans Day, where we honor men and women who have served in the United States armed services. Originally Veterans Day was proclaimed a day to remember those who died during World War I, but since 1954 has been a celebration of all who have served our country. There are many excellent reads featuring veterans and the families of those who have served our country. How are you going to celebrate Veterans Day?

What is the Truth, Really?: Unreliable Narrators

you lie by banksyHave you ever read a book or watched a movie and you felt like the main character or narrator was leading you astray? It could be that the narrator is trying to explain a situation out of his depth; the narrator could be suffering from a psychological disorder or illness that affects her judgment; the narrator could be a pathological liar or maybe the narrator just does not want us to truly know what is going on. In English class you’d call these folks unreliable narrators. They might not be out-and-out liars, but they certainly can make the truth not so easy to uncover. What have you read with an unreliable narrator?
