With the withdrawal of combat troops from Afghanistan, how will storytellers reckon with this thirteen-year war and its legacy among both Americans and Afghans? This event will benefit both RISC and Words After War, a nonprofit which organizes high-quality literary programming to provide veterans, their families and civilian supporters with the tools they need to tell their stories. Tickets are $25, $15 for students with ID. Get tours here:
