Drawing from hundreds of hours spent with veterans, Jeb Wyman — a speaker from the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau — discusses the profound moral and emotional impact the experience of war has had on them, and how war forever changes those who return from it, at three upcoming events on the Olympic Peninsula.
Wyman offers “Coming Home: How the Humanities Help Soldiers Find Meaning After War” at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., and at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9, at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.
He’ll also present at the Forks Library on Saturday, Nov. 10.
In his presentations, Wyman discusses stories of the men and women who served during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, incorporating experiences and insights from famous writers and philosophers about war and its aftermath.
Wyman touches on how studying war through the lens of the humanities may help both veterans and civilians heal the wounds of war.
