War and Healing: Artwork from the Combat Paper Project: Mercantile Library Exhibit

Everyone is invited to a special event on Friday, 15 November from 10 a.m. until noon at the Mercantile Library in the Thomas Jefferson Library at the University of Missouri, St. Louis, for readings and book signings to launch Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors, volume 2, a collection of prose and poetry by veterans and military family members. Friday's program kicks off an exhibit that will be open until 6 January 2014 at Mercantile Library and will feature readings by authors who have had their work accepted for the anthology. Many of these authors are veterans from the St. Louis area.

The moderator of the program, Colin Halloran, is a veteran of the Afghanistan war, a teacher and poet who leads workshops on understanding war through poetry.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. Parking is free and accessible in the West Drive Garage on the UMSL campus. An RSVP is appreciated; contact Julie at 314-516-6740 or via e-mail at <dunnmortonj@umsl.edu>.
