The Veterans Book Project would like to invite veterans and family members of veterans in the Milwaukee area to participate in a writing workshop. The workshop will be held at the Milwaukee Museum of Art and runs from December 10th through the 20th, roughly from 10am - 5pm each day, and operates as an open studio for participants to join us when they are available during the day. We would like to make a special call to family members and female veterans for this workshop.

The Veterans Book Project is a library of books authored collaboratively between artist Monica Haller and individuals experiencing the recent American-led wars. Many books are by veterans - one is by a mother, another by a brother whose sibling was killed in combat. Some books are by Iraqi's - a medical student a refugee recently arrived in the United States. They are the authors, the experts. Each individual book (as a vehicle of history and memory, stable yet mobile) re-deploys volatile images with the aim of re-articulating and refashioning memories. Each book stands alone, first disseminated by its author, and then becomes part of the larger VBP library, which is shared in museums and public libraries.
