Veterans Book Group

Connecting through shared experiences

“Homer’s Odyssey offers a map for Soldiers coming home. A reading group provides the opportunity for Veterans to read the map.” - Program participant

MHC book groups have always happened in places where people are already gathering for important reasons … but the pandemic has taught us swiftly that it is the connection among people that is the most important element of the work we do, even across distance.

Now, when great flexibility is what the moment calls for, we are excited to provide a new, flexible opportunity to host a text-based discussion program that meets the needs of your own community, whether you are working independently or as part of an organization.
