Abu Ghraib Soldier Pitching Her Book In Charleston

Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- Ex-army reservist Lynndie England will promote a biography with her perspective on the Abu Ghraib prisoner-abuse scandal at Charleston's Taylor Books on Sept. 19.

An August appearance at the Library of Congress was canceled over safety concerns, but Taylor Books owner Ann Saville says she's had only one call and one e-mail from people who are upset.

Taylor says hosting England doesn't indicate support for her actions. Saville says she has an open-door policy for any author who self-publishes.

England was photographed holding a restraint around an Iraqi man's neck, and giving a thumbs-up and pointing at the genitals of naked, hooded men.

She is appealing her convictions for conspiracy, mistreating detainees and committing an indecent act.
