This Friday is September 11th, a date that has become sacred to Americans and peace-loving people around the world. This week in #litchat we’re discussing the role of patriotism and world peace in literature. What is the role of the author in light of war, conflict, cultural/religious division? Do authors have a responsibility to promote peace? If so, at what cost?

There will be no guest host on Friday. Rather, we will join as a global community in remembering September 11th.
