Attend a Book Discussion and presentation by Phil Klay on April 25, 6:30pm. Phil Klay’s Redeployment takes readers to the front lines of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, asking us to understand what happened there and what happened to the soldiers who returned. Interwoven with themes of brutality and faith, guilt and fear, helplessness and survival, the characters in these stories struggle to make meaning out of chaos.

As part of an initiative by the National Endowment for the Humanities to promote understanding of the military experience and support returning veterans, Hunter College has received a major grant that will fund public events and classroom opportunities for veterans, other students, and non-student members of the community. Participants will explore classic works of literature, history, and philosophy to illuminate moral transformation, injury, and repair resulting from the experience of war. As part of the grant, a group of internationally acclaimed researchers, writers, and public intellectuals will visit Hunter to engage the public in wider discussion and provide capstone experiences for students.
