Parades, ceremonies, and remembrances are an important part of Veterans Day. So are veterans’ stories and voices. On Veterans Day 2021, the members of the Syracuse Veterans’ Writing Group read original literary work recounting their lives in and out of the military.
“Departures and Withdrawals: Readings by the Syracuse Veterans’ Writing Group” featured readings by members of the Syracuse Veterans’ Writing Group: Robert Brewer, Dr. Bill Cross, Shannon Kennedy, Richard Rodriguez, Lee Savidge, Jennifer-Rebeccah Williams, and Don Western. The moderators were Ivy Kleinbart and Eileen E. Schell, the co-leaders of the Veterans’ Writing Group and SU faculty. Watch below!
This event was co-sponsored by the Nonfiction Reading Series of the Department of Writing Studies, Rhetoric, and Composition and Hendricks Chapel’s Moral Injury Project of Syracuse University and Le Moyne College.
