“Where Do We Go From Here?”: America in the First World War

World War I Book Discussion Series

The story of a war is much more than the recital of facts, battles, and dates.   No matter the impacts of war upon nations and the world order, the underlying story of a war is its immediate and long lasting impacts on individuals.  Come participate in a book discussion of All Quiet on the Western Front, with discussion facilitator Angela Cunningham.

Presented by the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, Colorado Humanities, and the Colorado World War I Centennial Commission.

Pricing and Location

Members always get a discount on programs, and we would love to have you with us. Membership pays for itself with just a few programs for your family. Join us.
