Talk examines war and community

Friends and Foundation of the Rochester Public Library will present "Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging," a discussion of the book by Sebastian Junger on Tuesday, November 8. Tribe examines our search for meaning and societal rules of loyalty and being part of a community. It also looks at the reasons why, particularly among veterans, war and adversity can be remembered more intimately than weddings and vacations. Todd Baxter, director of the Veterans Outreach Center, will lead the book discussion. The event will be held at the Central Library, 115 South Avenue, from 12:12 p.m. to 12:52 p.m.
