James Wright, author of Enduring Vietnam, An American Generation and Its War, will present a talk on the culture of pre-war America, the force the War exerted on social trends and political life, and the stories of the men and women who served, on September 12.
Wright’s talk precedes the broadcast of the first episode of Ken Burns’ blockbuster documentary, The Vietnam War, scheduled for September 17 on PBS. It also launches Phase II of the New Hampshire Humanities veteran initiative, From Troy to Baghdad: Dialogues on War and Homecoming, which includes facilitated reading groups for veterans as well as public programs and workshops in libraries, schools, and community venues. A reception with light refreshments will begin at 6:00 pm, followed by the program at 6:30 pm. A Q & A with the author and a book signing will immediately follow the program, and books will be available for purchase. Please RSVP soon as we expect seats will be filled quickly! RSVP HERE.
