Central Library Book Discussion - The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien

Please join us at the MPL Central Library on Tuesday, May 13th at 7 pm for a discussion of Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried : a work of fiction. However, prior reading of this book is not necessary to join in the discussion. Tell the group about your experiences in the military or discuss the impact of military service on your family. Any and all contributions are welcome!
The Vietnam War experiences of the author are told in this outstanding work of fiction. This novel was a finalist for both the 1990 Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award and the acclaim is well deserved. The book is not a novel in the traditional sense, or a collection of short stories and not quite a memoir.
