Maxine Hong Kingston talked about the book she edited, Veterans of War, Veterans of Peace, published by Koa Books. Since the early 1990s, Ms. Kingston has led writing-and-meditation workshops for veterans, their families, and others affected by war in an effort to help them use writing to deal with the trauma associated with extreme violence. Some of the veterans of the Vietnam and Iraq wars who contributed to this collection joined her at the event to read excerpts from their work and talk about their experiences. close
