PEACE PRIZE TO O'BRIEN

Tim O'Brien, whose book, The Things They Carried, was the Wichita BIG READ book in 2011, has been honored with receipt of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize.

The Dayton awards are meant to recognize the power of literature in promoting peace and global understanding, and the achievement award goes to a writer for body of work.

O'Brien's writings "have shown war and its long-term impacts through a regular soldier's eyes."
