Standing Together


Military service and experiences can be hard to talk about with family and friends at home. Standing Together Montana, a reading and discussion program that uses powerful literature to start and keep the conversation going, lets veterans talk to peers about relevant issues and ideas.

Standing Together Montana features:

  • Discussions focused on stories, essays, personal accounts, and poetry
  • Skilled discussion leaders
  • Convenient meeting sites

Standing Together Montana discussions are not academic exercises and they are not therapy sessions. They do build reading and discussion skills and camaraderie.

A limited number of Standing Together Montana discussion series will be available beginning in September. Veterans’ and other community organizations interested in hosting a discussion series can apply here. Host organizations will be provided with books and discussion leaders and will be expected to provide a venue and manage the logistics of the series.

Standing Together Montana is made possible through a new initiative from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Standing Together: The Humanities and the Experience of War, the Great Books Foundation, and the New York Humanities Council.
