Writers reflect on the role of war and peace in our lives and literature.
Since our nation’s founding, American writers have focused their lens on the shattering human cost of war as well as its reverberating impact on times of peace. This year, we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice ending World War I — a global inferno whose consequences are felt even today.
Join us for an afternoon of readings, talk and reflection with leading Chicago writers whose work honors their own experience and that of others whose sacrifice we can never forget. Readers include: Reginald Gibbons, Nina Corwin, Gerald Brennan, Chris Green and contributors to "I Remember: Chicago Veterans of War."
Program admission includes museum admission. Veterans and active military get free admission on this day.
