Tim O’Brien Returns to Washington, D.C., Tonight

Vietnam War literature has become more prominent on the blogs thanks to the War Through the Generations Vietnam War Reading Challenge this year, and in conjunction with that, I’m hopeful that anyone in the D.C. area will drop down to Politics and Prose this evening to see Tim O’Brien, an acclaimed writer in the genre.

Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried turns 20 years old, and to celebrate, O’Brien will be in Washington, D.C., at Politics and Prose to give a reading and celebrate the book’s place in publishing history.  The reading will begin at 7 p.m. on March 24.

O’Brien also is slated to talk about the 20th anniversary edition of his short story collection on NPR’s Talk of the Nation on March 24 as well.

    I wish I could've gone! Still not feeling too hot but had to get my butt up off the couch. I slept for 3 hours after you called.

    Anyway, you'll have to tell us all about the event!
