Brothers Like TheseSponsored by the North Carolina Veterans Writing Alliance; Hosted by Joseph Bathanti
September 14, 2019
Saturday at 7:00 pm
Four years into their healing journey from scars carried over half a century, Vietnam veterans from the Charles George VAMC Creative Writing Program, return for their third staged reading at Asheville Community Theatre, where Brothers Like These was originally unveiled August 31, 2016. Their astonishing and deeply moving prose and poetry will inspire you, as it has dozens of audiences, in a variety of venues across North Carolina. It will also leave you with a keener appreciation of what it means, then and now, to be a combat veteran of the Vietnam War.
Please join us in affirming and celebrating the courage, selflessness, and reclaimed humanity of these veterans, as we at long last welcome them home. The evening is sponsored by the newly formed North Carolina Veterans Writing Alliance and hosted by former North Carolina Poet Laureate and Appalachian State University professor, Joseph Bathanti.
A reception will follow the performance.
