Writing War

July 30, 2015

After more than a decade of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, an impressive cadre of writers has emerged from the ranks of America’s military to put stories of war and homecoming on paper. BHS welcomes National Book Award winner Philip Klay (Redeployment), former U.S. Army Captain Matt Gallagher (Kaboom), NYTimes Editors’ Choice author Artis Henderson, and poet and playwright Maurice Decaul for a discussion moderated by Brandon Willitts, Executive Director of Words After War.

$5/Free for BHS and Green-Wood Members.

Funded project of the New York Council for the Humanities.  The New York Council for the Humanities is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
