Riley and his story : me and my outrage : you and us
Paris, France: Värnamo, Sweden: Onestar Press ; 2009
Riley and his story is the result of a collaboration Monica Haller initiated with Iraq war veteran Riley Sharbonno. It combines the text of their conversations and images of combat that Sharbonno took during his deployment in Iraq.
Inspired by Riley and his story, Haller went on to develop the Veterans Book Project, a series of workshops around the country for veterans of current conflicts and their families to create their own books about their experiences.
