Veterans and audience members will take part in reading lines from In Flanders Fields. This will be followed by a discussion of the poppy and Moina Michael, who started the movement to use the poppy as a symbol of remembrance.
This program is part of World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of Library of America presented in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from The National Endowment for the Humanities.
