On This Chosen Ground by Aaron Moore

Two Black soldiers Clifford and Ernest have been assigned to dig graves for the fallen soldiers in a field in occupied France during World War II. In the field by themselves they converse about many topics: life, music, love and their reason for being in a war.

The Weekend People by Tom Rowan

It’s June, and the surviving members of the wealthy and eccentric Burgess family are gathering at their homestead in the Catskill Mountains—for the first time since the loss of their powerful patriarch. Buried secrets, witty repartee, and passionate political debate are all on the menu—along with the potential for a summer romance or two. In the best tradition of the Big American Family Play, The Weekend People asks what it means to be a family in today’s volatile world.
