Save the date: 9/21 for Vietnam discussion
Posted August 17, 2017
Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s latest documentary, a 10-part 18-hour series about Vietnam, will air on PBS stations starting Sunday, September 17. (Burns and Novick previously brought us World War II, Baseball, Jazz, The Civil War, and other notable TV events.)
To mark the showing, on Thursday, September 21 at 7 p.m., Katherine Rye Jewell (Assistant Professor of History, Fitchburg State University) will offer some remarks about Vietnam and will facilitate a discussion about the topic. Those interested in Vietnam, 20th century U.S. history, documentary filmmaking, and related topics are invited to attend. Refreshments will be served, and the program is free of charge. (Note that we won’t be watching the Burns series, but discussing the history and events surrounding this time in history.)
