Speaking from varied military backgrounds and literary genres, four celebrated writers will discuss the connection between their experiences as veterans and their creative work.

“Military Service/Literary Solace: A Conversation with Veteran Writers” is presented in partnership with the Center for the Humanities, Missouri Humanities and Missouri Center for the Book and sponsored by the Veterans United Foundation. 


The MU Center for the Humanities’ Veterans Humanities Initiative is a multi-part series of engagements that seeks to understand and process the Veteran experience through creative writing, scholarship, and storytelling. Offered in collaboration with MO Humanities, many of the engagements are free and open to the public.
