Vietnam War community discussion at Fredericksburg Branch
Local panelists share their perspectives
FREDERICKSBURG, VIRGINIA, November 20, 2017 -  Central Rappahannock Regional Library is hosting a panel of community members who will share their experiences from the Vietnam War era on Thursday, November 30, 7:00 p.m., at Fredericksburg Branch. As combatants or civilians, these first-hand witnesses to the war itself and to the climate at home will explore how Vietnam was understood in the 1960s and 1970s and how it is understood today. Invited panelists are a diverse group, including men, women, American veterans, and anti-war activists. Former Free Lance-Star editor Ed Jones will moderate the discussion.

This event is offered as part of a grant from the American Library Association, PBS and WETA Washington, D.C. in support of the 10-part documentary, The Vietnam War, by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick.
