3/19: The Big Read: A Celebration of Tim O’Brien! (The Center At MDC)
Tuesday March 19-April 19 2013
The Things They Carried follows a platoon of infantrymen through the jungles of Vietnam. We see them trudge through the muck of a constant downpour, get hit by sniper fire, pull body parts out of a tree, laugh while they tell their stories to each other, and fall silent when faced with making sense of it all-both in the moment and twenty years later. Join us at a Big Read Event and get a free copy of The Things They Carried.

Tuesday March 19th at 6:30 p.m.
