Veterans Share Stories at MSU

Posted: Updated:

Six United States military veterans who have been participating in the Warrior Words workshop will share their stories this evening.

The readings will start at 7 pm in Aleshire theater inside Hartnett Hall on the campus of Minot State University.

Four workshops held around the region, were funded in part by the North Dakota Humanities Council.

Conrad Davidson says the experience was one of benefit and support for the vets.

(Conrad Davidson, MSU, Dean of College of Arts and Sciences) "I met with them eight times over the past two months and the group of writers that I have, consider it -I can tell- they consider it very important to be sharing their stories, to be writing about it. Because, they haven't talked about some of these things for years."

Veterans from the four cities holding workshops will be invited to the Grand Forks Community Theater for a collective reading on May 22.

Tonight's event is free of charge and open to the public.
