Anatomy of a Soldier – November 7th (note: change of date)

anatomy

There will be a change of venue for our next meeting!  On Tuesday evening at 5:30 we will be gathering in the 3rd floor conference room 301 at the IU South Bend Franklin D. Schurz Library.   

We will be discussing, Anatomy of a Soldier by Harry Parker.  This novel takes a unique conceit of being told entirely from the perspective of 45 inanimate objects that play a role in the story of a soldier seriously injured by an IED.  The novelist, Harry Parker, is a British soldier who lost both his legs in Afghanistan.  He has since completed a postgraduate degree in fine art at the Royal Drawing School in Shoreditch.  An article about the author can be found at: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health-fitness/body/harry-parker-losing-my-legs-in-afghanistan-was-like-losing-a-lov/

Rodger Pinto, the campus President of the Student Veterans Organization will lead our discussion.  His insights will give us a deeper understanding of a more recent conflict.
