Explore the Veteran Experience through reading
The Round Rock Public Library, along with libraries and organizations across Texas, are participating in “Read Across Texas: The Veteran Experience,” using books as a bridge to engage in a dialogue with the brave men and women who have served our country and discovering what happens when they return stateside.
Join us for a special program Tuesday, May 16, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Meeting Room B. Representatives from Heroes Night Out Veteran Resource Center will share some of their experiences and answer questions. We will discuss “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” by Ben Fountain or you can select one of the following books:
- What It Is Like to Go to War by Karl Marlantes
- The White Donkey: Terminal Lance by Maximilian Uriarte
- You Know When the Men Are Gone by Siobhan Fallon
Copies of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk are available for loan at the Library.
