Recognizing veterans

“Make plans now.  The Memorial Day Writers Project will hold its biannual reading on the National Mall this coming Veterans Day (Nov 11, 2018) from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm. We’ll be behind the sidewalk near 20 St.  and Constitution Ave.  Authors:  bring extra copies of your books to sell.  This is our 25th year on the Mall where we honor our veterans by celebrating and recalling their experiences through prose, poetry and song.  Tell a few friends and join us as we share our memories of good times and hard times in service to our country.”
