The Scrapbook had some nice things to say about What So Proudly We Hail, a new anthology of American short stories, speeches, letters, and patriotic songs edited by Amy A. Kass, Leon R. Kass, and Diana Schaub (ISI Books, $35).

What So Proudly We Hail

Now you have a chance to see the editors in action – along with Bill Kristol, Senator John McCain, and former ISAF Command Sergeant Major Mike Hall – at an event tomorrow at AEI. They’ll be discussing the meaning and importance of Memorial Day, drawing from a selection in the anthology, Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.’s "In Our Youth Our Hearts Were Touched with Fire."

Don’t miss out – register today to secure your seat.
