Event description:

All weekend long visitors can explore the Vietnam War in honor of the exhibition The Vietnam War: 1945-1975. This month, families can discuss acclaimed author Russell Freedman’s comprehensive look at the war, Vietnam: A History of the War, which contextualizes for middle graders one of America’s most confusing and fraught wars. At the meeting, veterans Herbert Sweat and Barbara Chiminello join to discuss their experiences and answer questions. After the book discussion and a Q&A, the group will explore the exhibition and take a look at an item donated by Ms. Chiminello.
