Join us for our second annual Veterans Book Group! Montpelier Arts Center will offer a free, facilitated small-group reading and discussion dinner series for active service members and veterans of all eras. The Veterans Book Group was created to offer veterans an opportunity to connect with one another over the course of monthly discussions centered on their military experiences. Each Veterans Book Group has its own unique set of readings. The readings can be a mix of classics, fiction, memoirs, poetry, short stories, and essays, all of which relate in some way to military experiences or offer a veteran’s perspective. Veterans Book Group is coordinated statewide by Maryland Humanities and presented locally in partnership with Montpelier Arts Center.

The reading list for this year is as follows:

A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra
A Rumor of War by Philip Caputo
Warlight by Michael Ondaatje
Wandering Souls by Wayne Karlin
The Dressmaker of Khair Khana by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
