Echoes of War

Echoes of War is a series of public discussions that uses literary texts and personal stories to engage Veterans and members of the public in dialogue on the memory of war in personal and public history. Led by trained community Discussion Leaders, events will be held throughout 2017-18 in Northfield, St. Paul, and Winona.

These events are free and open to the public – materials and refreshments will be provided. Registration for the series is requested. Click on this link: REGISTER NOW.

This project is made possible thanks to a “Dialogues on the Experience of War” grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
