ConcordVideo, discussion on ‘Vietnam War’

With the release of Ken Burns’s The Vietnam War, many Americans have returned to conversations about the war and platforms for the sharing of personal stories are resurfacing. To encourage such dialogue, Concord Public Library will host New Hampshire Humanities presenter Aaron Blais for a presentation entitled The Vietnam War: Defining America’s Past and Present. The event will take place Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the library, 45 Green St. With an eye on creating a greater understanding through dialogue and using scenes from the Ken Burns documentary, audience members will reflect and share on what the war meant and means to them personally and to the nation as a whole. This program is open to the public. Veterans, family and friends are encouraged to attend to share their stories. For more information, visit concordpubliclibrary.net.
