Truth in Recruitment  with Rosa del Duca and Before Enlisting

Click here to get your free ticket for his online event!

Join Books on B for a special Armistice Day presentation led by East Bay veteran, author and conscientious objector Rosa del Duca. Del Duca is a member of Before Enlisting, an organization dedicated to making sure teens are as informed as possible before making such a life-changing decision as joining the military. Del Duca and other core members of Before Enlisting will cover vital facts young people should consider before signing a long, legally binding contract with the military. Questions and debate welcome! Folks who register for this free Truth in Recruitment event can stop by Books on B for a free copy of Del Duca’s award-winning memoir, Breaking Cadence: One Woman’s War Against the War. Written with teens in mind, the book follows her transformation from scrappy tomboy to feminist and unlikely rebel. Ultimately, Del Duca decides that although she volunteered for eight years of military service, she cannot be part of the war on terror, even if it means she must fight legal battles to get out, and even if it means being branded a traitor.
