The Wadsworth Library provided the setting for “Storytelling: Vietnam Veterans in Literature.”
Concannon, a longtime Milwaukee television journalist, is the author “Mettle and Honor, Wisconsin Stories from the Battlefield,” which contains the stories of more than 60 Wisconsin Veterans.
“This was a really good event,” said Kris Moran, events and marketing director at Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce. “We would be willing to do more of these. I would be happy to find other authors who write about Veterans, or who are Veterans. Sometimes the writing itself is the catharsis, putting it down on paper. I’d love to find them. I know that they’re out. And, then giving them the stage, the opportunity to be in front of our audience, that would be great.”
