War Comes Home: The Legacy with Special Guest Andrew Carroll

Guest Speaker Andrew Carroll and Grand Opening of "War Comes Home: The Legacy" Exhibit

On Thursday, March 19, 6 – 7:30pm, Gavilan College will be hosting special guest speaker Andrew Carroll. Andrew is the co-curator of the War Comes Home exhibit (hosted by Gavilan College Library, March 16-April 24). As the Director of the Center for American War Letters and founder of the Legacy Project, Andrew has collected and preserved over 100,000 letters from American soldiers and their families. Andrew brings original letters of high-interest to share as he talks about how he became involved in collecting wartime correspondence. There will be a question and answer period as well as Gavilan College students reading selected letters for the audience. Guests are encouraged to view the exhibit following the event. We encourage local veterans and their families to donate their own letters to the Center for American War Letters at this event.
