AOT #160: Dana Canedy Podcasts A Journal for Jordan
Pulitzer Prize-winning editor and journalist Dana Canedy reads from and discusses A Journal for Jordan: A Story of Love and Honor. In 2005, Canedy’s husband, First Sergeant Charles Monroe King, began to write a journal for his son in case he did not make it home from the war in Iraq. He was killed on October 14, 2006, when an improvised explosive device detonated under his Humvee on an isolated road near Baghdad. His son, Jordan, was seven months old. This book is Canedy’s letter to her son-fierce in its honesty-about the father he lost before he could even speak. It is also a father’s advice and prayers for the son he will never know.
