It seems fitting that a book entitled LOVE IN A TIME OF BELLIGERENCE will sponsor a Hurricane Relief Fundraiser. In other words, 100% of sales proceeds will be donated to those aiding those adversely affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Payments can be taken by Paypal or check. Each book is U.S.$16.00 (the author will toss in free domestic shipping). To order Eileen R. Tabios’ new book, email her at email@example.com (or PM her if you’re on Facebook). This fundraiser will take place through Oct. 31, 2017.
As regards her book, here’s a description:
To understand human history is to recognize the eternal presence of belligerence. Eileen R. Tabios’ Love in a Time of Belligerence surfaces a variety of wars and their collateral damage of nature, indigenous culture, pets and infants, democracy, teachers, the poor, even “sex dolls,” among others. Such spirals to more losses: innocence, ideals, loyalties, family, and hopes. Love can be an antidote … until it’s not. The world presented in Tabios’ poetry does not reduce humanity to problem-and-solution—her poetry is one of insistent lucidity, which is an accomplishment on its own when one wants to hide one’s eyes from the world.
