2023 Plans: Expanding the Audience for Veterans Voices

In cooperation with Virginia Humanities and Longwood University, Home and Abroad will produce exhibits for libraries in Prince Edward, Cumberland, Nottoway, Charlotte, and Buckingham Counties beginning in January of the new year. The exhibits will feature works written by local veterans and members of military families about their experiences serving the country at home and abroad.

Opening presentations at each location will feature remarks by the Director about the program, comments by participating authors about the process and rewards of writing, and questions from the audience so that residents of central Virginia can learn more about the importance of individual stories to community history and indentity.

 

Helping to publicize these exhibits will be the Piedmont Area Veterans Council, the Farmville Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7059, and the American Legion.
