America in Times of Conflict at Chandler Public Library
April 2017: In support of Women's History Month, ADVS Director Wanda Wright participated in the Chandler Public Library's America in Times of Conflict series, moderating a panel entitled “She Went to War”, which provides sharing of stories and leading conversations about wartime and military experience as it has impacted Arizona residents.
The series wraps up in April with a documentary, Debt of Honor, April 4, at the Downtown Library; as well as a book discussion on The Sympathizer on Saturday, April 8, at 10:30am.
The final program "Creating Peace from Conflict" will be a theatre and music performance on Saturday, April 22, 10am at the Chandler Center for the Arts, in partnership with ASU and a number of Departments there.
The Chandler Library has many of their series' programs on video and on the Chandler Public Library's YouTube channel, including programs on helicopter pilots, the Korean War, Japanese internment in Arizona, the Vietnam War, and Morenci, AZ, WWII veteran and Gila River Community resident Ira Hayes, and Women's experiences in the military.
