Mama, Did They Drop The Bomb? by Redway Havens details a young man’s extraordinary attempts to stop the Iraq War in conservative North Texas.

“Havens’ commitment to ending the war and his enthusiasm for peace is refreshing and comes across in his work.” —Kirkus Indie Reviews

Chaos surges in Iraq. While the rekindled violence in that country roils the world and once again plunges America into confusion and fear, Mama, Did They Drop The Bomb? by Redway Havens gives a powerful look at the world of protest and what it means to be against war in America. Havens also provides a stark plea for peace, and clear reasons why human beings must stop fighting and killing each other, as well as destroying the planet.

“The President and his supporters repeatedly said, ‘We have to fight ‘em over there so we don’t fight ‘em over here.’ It was clear we were already fighting over here—fighting each other. On the streets. Guns everywhere. One big, globalized American Royal Rumble. Everyday.” —from Mama, Did They Drop The Bomb?

Redway Havens is a writer living in Centennial, Colorado. He holds a B.A. in History from the University of Texas at Arlington and M. Ed. from Regis University in Denver. He speaks, works, and writes in the interests of social justice, human and animal rights, and making the earth sustainable for future generations of all life forms.

Distributed through Amazon and Redway Media, Mama, Did They Drop The Bomb? is available in paperback ($15) and ebook ($6.99).
