Welcome to the Veterans Book Club! Indiana University South Bend is excited to host this exciting new community group geared to veterans, their families and friends as well as community members interested in veteran’s issues.
Participants will read books, short stories, poetry, and other readings to foster discussion, share experiences, and serve as a basis for veterans to connect with one another.
While exact numbers are hard to come by, the New York Times reports an estimated 5 million Americans belong to a book club. Reading groups geared to veterans are becoming prevalent across the country.
This book club was made possible by a gift to Vicki Bloom, Dean of Libraries from generous local philanthropists Jerry and Dorene Hammes.
