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 this spring. The exhibits will feature works written by local veterans and members of military families about their experiences serving the country at home and abroad.

The first event opening will be on March 13, 5:30, at Longwood University’s Greenwood library. The Director will make a 10-minute introduction to the free writing program for military, veterans, and family. Commander Fred Hill, US Navy veteran, will then speak  about the value of writing. And there will be time for questions and comments. Other Home and Abroad authors will be available to chat informally about their writing. The goal of the program is for residents of central Virginia to learn more about the importance of individual stories to community history and identity.

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