Veterans' Voices in Austin

Veterans, their family and friends, and other interested civilians are cordially invited to participate in the upcoming Veterans’ Voices reading and discussion series at Austin Community College. At each program, participants come together in small groups to read aloud from classic and contemporary literary texts about war, military service, and the return to civilian life. After the readings, participants engage in facilitated conversations that explore how the texts relate to their own experience and allow for shared reflection on combat and civic responsibility.

All events in this series will take place on the
Austin Community College Highland Campus:

October 25

4:00–6:00 p.m.
Veterans Resource Center

November 1
