Restless Souls, by Dan Sheehan & The Concrete, by Daniel Abbott, will be presented and discussed in conversation with Melissa X. Golebiowski of Literary Hub.

Restless Souls is a moving and darkly funny meditation on friendship, the emotional ravages of war, and the way our memories simultaneously comfort and restrict us from growing and moving on.
