Humanities Texas recently held Veterans’ Voices reading and discussion series in Austin, College Station, El Paso, Houston, and San Antonio. At each program, veterans, their families and friends, and other interested civilians came 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 engaged in facilitated conversations that explore how the texts relate to their own experience and allow for shared reflection on combat and civic responsibility.
These events were free and open to the public. No preparation or prior knowledge of the material is required for participation.
Additional Veterans' Voices programs will be annouced this fall, so please check back soon!

Veterans’ Voices is made possible with a Dialogues on the Experience of War grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
