HMCPL to offer book club for veterans

The Huntsville-Madison County Public Library and the Alabama Humanities Foundation (AHF) are proud to announce a new book club to serve our veteran population called “Literature and the Veteran Experience,” a humanities-based reading and discussion program for area veterans.

For many veterans, humanities can play an important role in expressing their unique issues and concerns that may arise from their experiences. The program’s goal is to create an opportunity for veterans to connect with one another, build relationships and reflect upon those issues through literature.
