The Vietnam War Program Series
The Power of Music in the Vietnam War
Thursday, December 7, 7-8 p.m.
Verona Public Library

Music serves as a backdrop for the Vietnam War in films, documentaries, and in memories. On Thursday, December 7, from 7 to 8 p.m., at the Verona Public Library, war veteran and UW-Madison author and educator Doug Bradley will discuss the meanings of iconic songs of the Vietnam era and how the music affected both those at home and in the combat zone. Bradley and co-author UW-Madison Professor Craig Werner’s book, We Gotta Get Out of this Place: The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War, was named Rolling Stone’s best music book of 2015. Copies will be available for sale and signing.

This presentation is part of a program series related to the Ken Burns and Lynn Novick film, The Vietnam War. Programming for The Vietnam War is offered as part of a grant from the American Library Association, PBS, and WETA Washington, D.C.

This presentation is free and open to the public. To register, or for information, visit www.veronapubliclibrary.org, or call 608-845-7180. The Verona Public Library is located at 500 Silent Street.
