This isn’t your typical literary event of authors reading from their published works of fiction, biography, or poetry. Veterans’ Readers Theater involves works in progress—authentic experiences that find a written form and are told by local veterans and their family members. For five weeks, these Kansas City area writers have been finding their voices, then telling their stories in what can be a cathartic experience for them as well as a riveting and emotional one for the audience. All of the prose and poetry blends together in a unifying script on Tuesday evening, November 13 from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library in conjunction with the Missouri Arts Council, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S., and the Missouri Humanities Council. This is a free event, but you must register.
