History & Culture featuring Doug Bradley: Music in the Vietnam War Wed, Feb 21, 2018 — 5:45PM
To kick off our History & Culture Programming series for 2018, Doug Bradley will join us for a discussion exploring the influence music played during the Vietnam War.
Doug Bradley is an author, educator, and Vietnam war veteran from Madison, WI. In his book, “We Gotta Get Out of this Place: The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War,” Bradley explores how (and why) soldiers turned to music as a way of connecting to each other and to their lives back home.
Rolling Stone called Bradley's book the "#1 Music Book of the year," saying, "Doug Bradley and Craig Werner's account of music's connection to the Vietnam War is intimate and deeply informative, with a scope that encompasses both the war itself and the way that music has helped raise awareness of veterans' issues long after its end."
Event price is $50 per person and includes dinner. Registration is open to all members and their guests. Reserve: https://dougbradley.eventbrite.com
