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.
