Event Description:

NPR’s Steve Inskeep leads a discussion and resource fair on the healing impact of the arts and humanities related to the physical and mental wounds of war.

Veterans, their families, and those who care about the status of veterans in our community are invited to a resource fair and panel discussion focused on how physically and mentally wounded veterans can use the arts and humanities as a way to deal with their experiences and/or challenges.

The resource fair will feature creative works by veterans as well as information for those interested in getting more involved in the community. The panel will include moderator Steve Inskeep from NPR’s “Morning Edition,” as well as veteran/New York Times bestselling author Luis Carlos Montalván, his therapy dog Tuesday, and other veterans. Their discussion will include personal insights on how veterans can cope with their war wounds by exploring their creative sides through the arts and humanities.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs still requested.

Presented by the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library, Indianapolis Public Library, and Veterans for Peace Chapter 49.
