True Tuesday Showcase: Run, Brother, Run by David Berg

True Tuesday Showcase: Run, Brother, Run by David Berg

Last week we started a new feature called True Tuesday Showcase and y’all seemed to like it, so we’ll continue with that theme. This week, we’re highlighting Run, Brother, Run: A Memoir of Murder in My Family by David Berg.

A searing family memoir of a tempestuous Texas boyhood that led to the vicious murder of the author’s brother. As William Faulkner said, “The past is not dead, it’s not even past.” This observation seems especially true in matters of family, when the fury between generations is often never resolved and instead secretly carried, a wound that cannot heal.

True Tuesday Showcase: My Story by Elizabeth Smart

So, I think we’re going to start a new weekly feature on Tuesdays showcasing books that are based on a true story. What do you think?

Let’s start with this week’s new release MY STORY by Eliabeth Smart with Chris Stewart. For months, Elizabeth’s kidnapping dominated the news, but this is really the first time we get to read her story in her own words.
