Henrico County Public Library is collaborating with the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities to offer a national reading and discussion group for veterans called Talking Service. The first Talking Service program will be held at Libbie Mill Library, located at 2100 Libbie Lake East Street, on Wednesday, January 13 at 7pm.
At Libbie Mill Library, veterans will come together over the course of eight Wednesday night sessions to discuss a variety of readings about military service from the book Standing Down: From Warrior to Civilian, published by the Great Books Foundation. Each selection serves as a jumping off point for vets to reflect on their own experiences in the military and returning home. The discussions will be facilitated by Mike Hatchett, Fairfield Area Library Manager and OIF (Operation Iraqi Freedom) Veteran.
Talking Service is free and open to past and present members of the Armed Forces and the general public. For more information about the program call 804-290-9400 x.5.
