Author Katey Schultz will discuss her debut book, a series of short stories titled “Flashes of War,” at 7:30 p.m. Friday at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in Davis.

Illuminating the intimate, human faces of war, this series of short stories by the award-winning author questions the stereotypes of modern war by bearing witness to the shared struggles of all who are touched by it.

Numerous characters — a returning U.S. soldier and a pragmatic jihadist, an Afghan mother and a listless American sister, a courageous amputee and a ghost that cannot let go — appear in “Flashes of War,” which captures personal moments of fear, introspection, confusion and valor in one collection spanning nations and perspectives.

“Written in clear, accessible language with startling metaphors, this unforgettable journey leaves aside judgment, bringing us closer to a broader understanding of war by focusing on individuals, their motivations and their impossible decisions,” a news release said.

” ‘Flashes of War’ weaves intimate portrayals of lives affected by the war on terror into a distinctive tapestry of emotional resonance. It builds bridges, tears them down and sends out a universal plea for reconnection.”
