Somerville READS Discussion of The Things They Carried

Join Porter Square Books and Somerville READS for a discussion of The Things They Carried, led by Margot Livesey.

Since its first publication, The Things They Carried has become an unparalleled Vietnam testament, a classic work of American literature, and a profound study of war that illuminates the capacity, and the limits, of the human heart and soul.

Margot Livesey's acclaimed novels include Eva Moves the Furniture, Banishing Verona, Homework, and The House on Fortune Street. Her fiction has appeared in The New Yorker and The Atlantic Monthly. Born in Scotland, she lives in Cambridge and teaches at Emerson College.
