Veterans' Writing Group: True Stories from WWII, Korea, and Vietnam

We Were There: Writing Your Military Experiences

Join us for a panel discussion and short film showing with members of The Veterans’ Writing Group.

The Russell Library Veterans' Writing Group has been meeting and writing stories of their incredible experiences for several years. They are being published by En Route Publishing in 2019.

Come get a sneak peek ahead of time of this fascinating book. Come listen to the true stories from WWII, Korea, and Vietnam.

The Veterans from all the branches of service, and from multiple conflicts will tell their stories, and answer question about their time in service.

The group is led by Old Saybrook native Elisabeth Petry. Her first book, a collection of letters that she edited, was Can Anything Beat White?: A Black Family's Letters. Her second is At Home Inside: A Daughter’s Tribute to Ann Petry. She lives in Middletown with her husband, Lawrence Riley, who is a dog trainer and Commander of the American Legion Milardo-Wilcox Post 75, Middletown CT.
