First Tuesday Book Club Meeting, October 7

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.*
