For September, we'll be reading What it is Like to Go to War by Karl Marlantes.
In his memoir, Marlantes relates his combat
experiences in Vietnam and discusses the daily contradictions warriors
face in the grind of war,
where each battle requires them to take life or spare life. He also
underscores the need for returning veterans to be counseled properly.
We will be meeting in the Visalia Branch Blue Room to discuss this book on October 7 from 6:30pm - 7:45pm.
*Author Karl Marlantes will be speaking at the Visalia Veterans Memorial Building on October 9, 2014 at 10:30 am to discuss his book, What is it Like
to go to War, and to answer questions. More information on this event can be found here.*
