Video 11/3/2015: Writing Truth: Stories from the Military Experience

Join us for readings of highly personal and thought-provoking stories written by U.S. veterans and caregivers of critically injured veterans. These stories came out of the Helen Deutsch Writing Workshop program with the Writers Guild Initiative, which strives to help people from all walks of life find their voice and tell their story. This program may contain mature themes. This performance is co-sponsored by the Writers Guild Initiative and the Office of VSA and Accessibility, a Jean Kennedy Smith Arts and Disability Program.
