Arlington County – home to the Pentagon, Fort Myer and Arlington National Cemetery – is never far from war.
Because understanding a soldier’s life and work is so relevant to our community, Arlington Reads 2011 features the theme “The Soldier’s Story: Serving Country and Community.” We will read Pulitzer-prize winning Washington Post reporter David Finkel’s “The Good Soldiers” – a non-fiction account of U.S troops in Iraq – and Tim O’Brien’s “The Things They Carried” – a work of fiction about American soldiers in the Vietnam War.
Arlington Reads 2011 will also include:
- Community Discussion moderated by GU professor and author Nancy Sherman – March 31.
- Author Talk with David Finkel – April 14
- Author Talk with Tim O’Brien – April 21
- Activities for students and families
All events are free and open to the public, but seating is limited and will be on a first come, first serve basis – for details on seating, visit the Library website or call 703-228-6321.
