Maxine Hong Kingston and guests celebrate Veterans of War, Veterans of Peace, a harvest of creative, redemptive storytelling written by those most profoundly affected by war.Since 1991, author and peace-maker Maxine Hong Kingston has been leading meditation-and-writing workshops for veterans and their families. This book is a collection of the essays, poems, and stories of these veterans of war and veterans of peace. Vast in scope and in heart, it is the distilled wisdom of survivors of five wars. The contributors to this volume - combat veterans, medics, and others who served in war; gang members, drug users, and victims of domestic violence; draft resisters, deserters, and peace activists - are part of a large community of writers working together to heal the trauma of war through art. Reading their words, we witness worlds torn apart then rebuilt. Those speaking this evening, in addition to Kingston, are Maureen Nerli, Doug Howerton, Ted Sexauer, Clare Morris, Mike Wong, Sean Mclain Brown, Dan Fahey, and Dennis Fritzinger. Kingston is the author of The Fifth Book of Peace, To Be the Poet, Hawai'i One Summer, Tripmaster Monkey, China Men, and The Woman Warrior. - Cody's Booksmoreless
