A series of discussion groups for Maine veterans based on classical Greek and modern humanities sources.

"Telling the Story: a Book Group for Veterans" is a unique humanities initiative for Maine’s Veterans. A scholar-led, Veteran–centered reading and discussion program, the project helps Veterans form relationships with one another, reflect upon issues of particular interest or concern, and engage with materials that help them see their own stories as part of a larger human experience, connecting them with others across time and culture. The discussion groups will reach five communities throughout Maine over the course of two years, serving Veterans in Bangor, Brunswick, Portland, Sanford, and Augusta. The project will begin with a preparatory program that will prepare NEH Discussion Leaders to be effective facilitators for these groups. Facilitators will be trained in issues of concern to Veterans and will have a basic understanding of military culture. The preparatory session will offer guidance in how to facilitate discussions of ancient Greek epics and contemporary war literature.
