Initiatives > Talking Service: A Reading & Discussion Program > Seeking Partnership


The New Mexico Humanities Council (NMHC) is seeking hosting organizations to participate in a multi-session reading and discussion program for veterans. The NMHC and the Great Books Foundation share a desire to provide opportunities for veterans to reflect on their service and prepare for the next phase of their lives. We both believe that reading and talking about literature opens up conversations and minds, and can transform lives and communities. That’s why we are bringing this unique anthology Standing Down: From Warrior to Civilian to make available opportunities for this kind of discussion in New Mexico to the men and women who have served our country.
