It's been said that a picture is worth a thousand words but, in this modern age of television and streaming, we can become numb to the ever-present images of war that flicker across our screens and the nightly news. There's something about the written word that helps us get inside a story, to think about how it feels to experience loss, anger, joy, fear and courage. A new term has been coined – America's "Forever War" – that describes our country's persistent state. It also has given rise to a new sort of fiction that looks at the aftereffects of the Iraq and Afghan Wars. Come hear a panel discussion with some of the writers who contributed to the 2017 veteran fiction anthology The Road Ahead: Fiction from the Forever War at Brazos Bookstore, with moderation by Brian Van Reet; he is a Houston native and author of the 2017 Iraq war novel, Spoils. 7 p.m. June 22. 2421 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-523-0701 or visit brazosbookstore.com. Free.
