Veteran’s Day is an annual celebration of United States honoring military veterans who fought for their country during the war. It is observed on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I.

On November 11, 2010, veterans and their families will be honored by the Westport Arts Center (WAC) in collaboration with MouseMuse Productions. It is a literary arts program that will be held on Thursday, November 11 at 12:30 p.m. (US date and time) to commemorate Veteran’s Day.

According to Westport‘s Wednesday article, personal essays and poems inspired by wartime experiences of veterans and their family will be acted out by professional performers. This is to recognize all veterans and authors who submitted their personal experiences through essays and poems. Thus, they decided to host a special Veteran’s Day Program called “Out Of War“.

“The readings are going to be presented as a performance work. Sort of like Ken Burns in a documentary, but without images” Literary Arts Director Ina Chadwick was quoted saying.

Meanwhile, Tessa Smith McGovern, publisher of the newly launched eChook Digital Publishing Company said, “The honor and healing we bring to ourselves and others by recording our experiences is precisely the reason why stories have been in existence since people first inscribed images on cave walls. Stories, especially memoirs, teach us about life.”
