The Things They Carried is based on O’Brien’s wartime experiences while serving in Vietnam.
Kaite Stover, Director of Readers Services from the KC Public Library, will lead a discussion of Tim O’Brien’s award-winning book. Participants and audience members are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the book prior to the event, as audience input is desired.
This discussion begins our weekend veterans writing workshop where veterans and their families are encouraged to take a cue from Tim O'Brien's book and consider their own memory-laden object that they carried through both wartime and peace. All members of the community are welcome as we bridge the civilian and military world.
