Event Description

Standing Down: From Warrior to Civilian created by the Great Books Foundation and provided by the Florida

The Indian River State College Pruitt Campus Library is hosting a book discussion series for veterans using passages from the book Standing Down: From Warrior to Civilian. The discussion series begins on October 16 and will have multiple sessions during the week. Participants will receive a copy of the readings prior to the first session. Veterans are invited to attend any or all of the sessions offered at the Indian River State College’s Pruitt Campus Library. For a list of sessions and to register for the series please visit http://irsc.libsurveys.com/staindingdown. This program was created by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Great Books Foundation in recognition of the fact that less than 1 percent of the U.S. population engages in military service, and that as a result veterans often struggle to find their military experiences understood by the public at large, the Standing Down reading and discussion program is specifically designed to give veterans the space to speak authentically about both their service and transition back to civilian life. For more information please contact Brett Williams, bwilliam@irsc.edu or (772)336-6383.
