Vista Grande Library's adult book club: Non-fiction

The Literati book club will be reading and discussing our first non-fiction book of the season: Once a Warrior: How one veteran found a new mission closer to home by Jake Wood. "When Marine sniper Jake Wood came home in 2009 from grueling tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, his country asked yet more of him: to compartmentalize his traumatic memories, put his elite military training on a shelf, and adjust to living outside high-stakes situations...One activity helped Jake and his friend and fellow Marine Clay Hunt find a measure of hope: helping communities after disasters, where their training rendered them unusually effective in high-stakes situations...Over the past 10 years, with no money or experience, he and his team have recruited over 100,000 volunteers to his organization Team Rubicon...Having a continued purpose--a mission that matters--can be the key to a veteran's successful transition from war to peace."

The Literati meets every first Wednesday of the month from September to April at 11 am -12:30 pm at the Vista Grande Library.
