“The Things They Carried” Exhibit of Veteran Memorabilia – Now through January

November 12th, 2013 by calee51

The CFCC Wilmington Campus Library is pleased to present an exhibit of student and employee veteran memorabilia that has been carried by our veterans during combat and peacetime deployments overseas.

Ours is an exhibit focused on student items, curated by students, for students. CFCC faculty member Rick Conn and students in his ART 122 – Three-Dimensional Design class curated the exhibit

The display is part of the larger Big Read Greater Wilmington program. Our community read this year is The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien.  All of the community partners are hosting events and programs related to the book, culminating on January 15th with a free lecture by author Tim O’Brien at UNCW’s Kenan Auditorium.
