This year, the Yakima Valley Libraries welcome community members to learn how a neighbor’s life–and perhaps their lives–are connected to those in Afghanistan. Cynthia Garrick, Reference Services Librarian at the Yakima Valley Libraries, let us know about their compelling event this September:
As part of the September Project at Yakima Valley Libraries, Dr. Ken Zontek, history instructor at Yakima Valley Community College, will describe his perspective on 9/11, its relationship to his subsequent Afghan deployment as an Army officer, and post-deployment effort to improve Afghan lives working with a women’s shelter in Afghanistan.
His talk is entitled “From Big Apple to Apple Capital to Afghanistan; Emotion, Reason and Commitment” and will take place on September 11 at 6:30 at the Summitview Branch Library.
If you’re in Yakima this September, be sure to visit the library!
