We Were There: Writing Your Military Experiences


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

The Veterans' Writing Group resumes their weekly workshops beginning in March!
Author Elisabeth Petry will continue to lead the Veterans' Writing Group. This series, in its third year, invites all active or retired Veterans to share their stories and photos and to record their experiences in their own voices for their own benefit or to share with family and friends. Currently, service members from combat and non-combat situations from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and Iraqi Freedom attend. We hope to hear from other Iraq War Vets, and those who have served in Afghanistan. Newcomers are always welcome! Old Saybrook native Elisabeth Petry is a writer and former journalist and lawyer. The workshop facilitator is Christy Billings. She can be reached at (860) 347-2528 or cbillings@russelllibrary.org
