California Humanities hosted five public forums focusing on themes relating to veterans, from the traumas of war to Hollywood and mythmaking to the changing faces of veterans. These conversations took place in at public libraries in Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Riverside, and Los Angeles in Summer 2014. The videos of these panel discussions will be available on our website in October 2014.
