A special ONE BOOK STEAMBOAT book club discussion of The Things They Carried, Tim O'Brien's award winning story of the Vietnam War.

This community discussion is being led by special guest facilitators Jenny Gabriel and Deirdre Boyd. These two teachers from the Steamboat Springs High School are well-versed in this novel as they team teach The Things They Carried in the school's American Studies curriculum. This fall, as we mark the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, join your friends and neighbors in discussing Tim O'Brien's unparalleled Vietnam testament and  classic work of American literature  -- a book about how we process our past through the act of storytelling
