The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is observed annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in acombat zone for humanitarian aid access. The day was first celebrated in 1982, and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples.

Carol Wilder: Crossing The Street In Hanoi

A Reading & Reception
March 6, 2014
Thursday, 6-9pm
Social Room, VCMC
