As the wife of an Army Colonel, Angela Ricketts knows firsthand the effects of war on the families of those who serve. In her acclaimed debut book, No Man's War: Irreverent Confessions of an Infantry Wife, she offers a behind-the-scenes look at the sacrifices made and the hardships endured by soldiers' spouses and children, and provides a rare glimpse into the tight-knit, sometimes insular community of military families. Hampton Sides, bestselling author of In The Kingdom of Ice, Blood and Thunder and Ghost Soldiers, spoke with Ricketts about her book.

Angela Ricketts will be participating in a panel discussion tomorrow night entitled "Women at War" along with Helen Thorpe, former first lady of Colorado and bestselling author of Soldier Girls: The Battles of Three Women at Home and at War and Just Like Us. The panel will be held Wednesday, Februrary 4th at 7pm in the Celeste Theater at Colorado College's Cornerstone Arts Center, and will be be moderated by Hampton Sides.
