Veterans Book Group
Jan. 2023-May 2023
Join us for our sixth 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 throughout 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. These discussions will be led by Dr. Karen Arnold, former poet-in-residence at Montpelier Arts Center and discussion moderator for multiple literature groups in Baltimore. Dinner and all reading materials are provided. Please call Montpelier Arts Center for more information and to register. Spaces are limited; registration is required by Monday, January 9, 2023.
