Susan Galleymore, the author of “Long Time Passing: Mothers Speak About War and Terror,” is in Seattle tonight and will be in Lakewood this weekend as part of a book tour.

Galleymore’s son, Nick, served in Iraq and Afghanistan. When he deployed to Iraq in 2004, she linked up with an advocacy group and traveled to Iraq to meet her son.

“During her trip to Iraq was moved and inspired by the stories she heard from the mothers of Iraq,” a press release said. “This started her on a journey interviewing mothers in war zones including Iraq, Israel and the West Bank, Lebanon, Syria, Afghanistan and the US.”
