ALBUQUERQUE VIETNAM VET SHARES POETRY 3:00 PM SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, AT PAGE ONE

Albuquerque author Jim Nye, a Vietnam veteran, will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, September 24, to talk about and sign his newest collection of poetry, "Eating the Ashes."

The book is described as such: "Poems and prose from the Vietnam War published by Las Cruces-based Grandma Moses Press. Jim Nye has said of his war poems, 'Some of these things happened, some did not. But that does not matter, because all are true. This is my attempt to realize and communicate that truth.'"

Nye published his first collection of poetry, "After Shock: Poems and Prose from the Vietnam War" in 1991, based on his two tours of duty in Vietnam. The first tour was with the 101st Airborne and the second with the 5th Special Forces Group. He went through Officer Candidate School before serving in the army. After leaving the service, he graduated from the University of Tampa, and then went to the Dickinson School of Law. He is married, and has one daughter and two grandchildren. He lives in Albuquerque.

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Nye event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visitwww.page1book.com.
