In the UK members of the public wear the paper poppy on their chest in November as a symbol of Remembrance: to remember the fallen Service men and women killed in conflict. I see that the 11th is Veterans Day (in the USA?) too.

Your mission, BookCrosser, is to release a book at sunset with something related to war, conflict (including victims of war or conflict such as refugees), or poppies, in the title or on the cover. Good luck!

 

I will release "Goodbye to All That", by Robert Graves, at sunset. Robert Graves wrote about the time he took part to WW I.

My books are about WWII, because it makes me shiver when we're campering along the French coast to see all these war cemeteries.

My book is The Optician of Lampedusa by Emma Jane Kirby which is based on the real life experience of a man who helped rescue migrants / refugees from the Mediterranean after going out in a boat for a few days leisure trip and encountering drowning people whose boat had sunk.

I might be a bit early in my releasing as I am going to my mum's tonight and I want to leave it in a Little Free Library near my home.

I do love the way you find themed locations too. Very appropriate.
