Roundtable Mixer: Veterans and Viewpoints

Join the Baker Institute Roundtable and Roundtable Young Professionals for a special Veterans Day celebration featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Robert Olen Butler and Bruce Weigl. Novelist Butler (“A Good Scent From a Strange Mountain”) and poet Weigl (“Song of Napalm”), two of the most accomplished writers of the last 50 years, both served in the Vietnam War and offer unique perspectives on their military experience. Enjoy what should be a very memorable literary evening filled with friendly conversation and drinks as the Baker Institute honors the service of veterans, who now make up over 20 percent of the Roundtable Young Professionals group. Books will be available for purchase courtesy of the Brazos Bookstore.

This event is co-sponsored by the Baker Institute Roundtable and Roundtable Young Professionals and Houston Public Libraries.

Join the conversation online with #BakerVeterans.
