Book Discussion: Testament of Youth

Feb 7, 2018

“Where Do We Go From Here?”: America in the First World War


World War I Book Discussion Series. Book Discussion. The story of a war is much more than the recital of facts, battles, strategies, dates, casualties, treaties, etc. No matter the impacts of war upon nations and the world order, the underlying story of a war is its immediate and long lasting impacts on individuals. The impacts are upon the planners and initiators of a war, the combatants in the war, the families of participants, and those who must suffer the privations always attendant to war and its aftermath. Come participate in a book discussion of Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain, a memoir of a young nurse during her service on the Western Front.



Presented by the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, Colorado Humanities, and the Colorado World War I Centennial Commission. Location and Pricing: Golden History Park – Guy Hill Schoolhouse, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Free. Registration is required. Program will be canceled if minimum attendance number is not reached 24 hours prior to start time.
