CCC Marks Veterans Day with Words of War and Peace

 Clackamas Community College will commemorate Veteran’s Day with a special reading of words of war and peace. The Veteran’s Day reading will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 13, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Literary Arts Center, room 220 in Rook Hall at the Oregon City campus.

Participants are encouraged to share written works in any form that describe a veteran transitioning to civilian life, an event that happened in wartime, or a letter to or from a veteran who doesn’t understand a personal experience — either on the front line or on the home front.

The Veteran’s Day reading will include a social hour and refreshments. Community members are encouraged to attend.

The Veteran’s Day reading is sponsored by the CCC English Department. It is one of several seasonal readings scheduled this academic year. Future events include a gratitude reading in connection with Thanksgiving, William Stafford’s birthday, Oregon’s birthday and Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and National Poetry Month.
