When: Wed., Oct. 19, 7-8:45 p.m. 2016
Poet Kathleen Swazuk will read selections from her work Wartorn Heart: Poems and Art Inspired by the Vietnam War. Kathleen was 19 years old and a junior in nursing school when she joined the Army Student Nurse Program. Two years later she was in Vietnam, seeing and experiencing the horrors of war. She hid the memories and her pain of that time in the poems in this book, which have been lovingly illustrated by artists in a variety of mediums. The book will be available for purchase that evening.
