Panel, reading to explore Art of War

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

(The Collegian covered the event. Read story here.)

Art of the War – a panel, exhibit and reading – will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 23, in Kansas State University’s Hale Library, Hemisphere Room (501).

John Musgrave will read from his book “Notes to the Man Who Shot Me: Vietnam War Poems" at the event sponsored by The Institute for the Health and Security of Military Families, College of Human Ecology.

A panel of current soldiers in the Fort Riley Warrior Transition Battalion will share their experiences, reflect on how the arts fit into their healing process, and discuss their perspective on how the generations can learn from one another in healing and recovery from war.

Art by Major Jeff Hall, formerly of Fort Riley, will be on display.

Musgrave, a Vietnam veteran from Lawrence, will sign copies of his book, which will be for sale after the presentations in The Hemisphere Room.
