The Stanford Storytelling Project invites you to share an evening of personal stories, music, letters and conversation with Stanford veterans recently returned from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. While we hear almost daily about the large-scale effects of these wars in the news, we rarely hear about their profound effects on the lives of thousands of veterans and their families.
This Veterans Day, the Stanford community will have the chance to listen to and engage in conversation with student and recently graduated veterans of the Iraq and Afghan wars. These veterans and some of their family members will come together for a single special event, to share what they have experienced and learned both about war and about the journey home.
The evening will feature excerpts from the Storytelling Project’s audio documentary of these soldiers, “Returning Home,” and will be hosted by Xandra Clark, producer for the Stanford Storytelling Project. The discussion will be moderated by Joel Brinkley, Pulitzer Prize winner and former foreign correspondent for The New York Times.
Join us for a rare perspective on war and help build a bridge between the civilian and military experiences.
This program is co-sponsored by The Stanford Storytelling Project, The Haas Center for Public Service and the Stanford Military Service Network.
