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.

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.
