Email from Cindy Sheehan
the right wing has my book under attack.
They are writing hateful reviews about it on Amazon.com, obviously without having read it.
Now the right-wing sites are publishing photos of me sitting at the table waiting to sign books.
Thses pictures were taken before we started.
We sold 100 books....I got writer's cramp.
Below is a link to a review of my book which the person actually read.
This is a letter from my publisher if you would like to pass it along.
Love you all
As publisher of Cindy Sheehan's new book, Not One More Mother's Child, I need to set the record straight about a lie circulating right-wing websites that has even made it onto amazon.com.
I donated 100 copies of Not One More Mother's Child to Crawford Peace House, encouraging them to sell these copies to benefit their work. During her Thanksgiving Vigil near President Bush's ranch, Cindy agreed to sign copies for those who bought them, as a benefit for Crawford Peace House. AP and Reuters posted photos – I can't imagine why – of Cindy sitting at the book table between signings, rather than while someone was at the table. And now the smear websites are circulating an article, with these photos, that Cindy gave a signing and nobody came. It's simply not true! She not only signed all 100 copies and raised $2,000 for Crawford Peace House, she got writer's cramp!
These kinds of lies helped defeat Senator McCain in 2000 and Senator Kerry in 2004. The right has been trying to humiliate and "Swift-Boat" Cindy since she helped galvanize the peace movement in August. It is important to set the record straight. Cindy's book, Not One More Mother's Child, is being very well received nationwide, and the benefit booksigning in Crawford Texas on November 26, 2005 was well attended and a huge success.
