Brian Turner, War Poet
Brian Turner, War Poet

AIR DATE: October 19, 2010

"Tomorrow begins with shrapnel and blood...." That's the line Brian Turner wrote - about death he saw firsthand.

Brian Turner was a soldier in Iraq when he started writing poetry. He described the rush of bullets, the desert nights in Iraq, and what it's like to see a comrade fall in battle. His first book of poetry, Here, Bullet, skyrocketed him into the limelight - at the same time, he struggled to adjust with his return to America. Brian Turner reflects on the painful beauty of Iraq, and how one finds grace in a time of war. Join us for an in-depth look at the battleground through a soldier-poet's eyes.
