Burlington Women Veterans Book Group

December 15, 2017

This series is open to all women who have served in the U.S. military. The group is free, but pre-registration is required.

Veterans Book Groups create an opportunity for veterans to explore books, poetry, articles, and short stories, with the goal of fostering camaraderie and a safe space to reflect and share ideas and questions. Participants receive free copies of all readings, and lunch will be provided at each session.
