“Homer’s Odyssey offers a map for Soldiers coming home. A reading group provides the opportunity for Veterans to read the map.” -- Program participant
We are offering several book groups to all Maine Veterans / Former Service Members in the fall of 2017. Groups may focus on one longer text, like the Odyssey, or instead read selected short stories, novels, memoirs, historical texts, essays, or poems related to the experience of military service.
In Spring, 2018, book groups will take place in Lewiston, Thomaston, and Portland. To stay informed about upcoming Veterans Book Groups, join our VBG Mailing List.
