On April 21, National Book Award Winner Tim O’Brien came to Marymount to read from his collection of stories, The Things They Carried. The book,which blends the author’s real experiences with fiction, is widely recognized as one of the most important literary works about the Vietnam War.

Replete with shocking images and raw emotion, the excerpts that Mr. O’Brien read captured the imagination of the students in his audience, transporting them to a distant time of war and casting new light on past and present conflicts.
