AN EVENT WHICH REMEMBERS THE TRUE STORY OF 5 YOUNG SOLDIERS WHO FOUGHT THE IRAQ WAR WITH MUSIC INSTEAD OF WITH BULLETS.

FREE AND OPEN FOR ALL VETERANS AND CIVILIANS!


Vromans would like to personally invite all of you to the official publication event and book signing of White Whisker Books long awaited published Rock N' War military novel "The Chords of War" at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena CA on September 28th, 2017 at 7 pm!

Meet Authors Christopher Meeks and Samuel Gonzalez Jr. in PERSON for a reading and signing!

There will be a reading, food, drinks, pre-release limited edition hard cover printings of the novel, and gathering in celebration of the long-awaited night.


SYNOPSIS
The Chords of War is the semi-autobiographical true story of punk rock teenager Max Rivera from Florida, who seeks purpose as he tries to understand why his life always teeters between music and mayhem. After he's kicked out of his band on tour, he joins the Army to change his life. It's after 9/11, and he finds himself under fire in Iraq, part of the surge in Baquabah. In order to deal with his teen angst and raging hormones among daily patrols, coordinated battles, and women fighting alongside him, Max creates a new band with soldiers. Will Max and his friends survive? How did he get to this point in his life?


CRITICS ARE SAYING:

"Chords of War brilliantly shows that the chaos, destruction, and terror of war can spawn primal desires, not only to survive, but also to love, to create, and, if you've got a guitar and the chops, to rock the hell out."

- Writer/Showrunner Graham Yost (Justified, The Americans, The Pacific, Band of Brother (part 7), Speed)
