About This Show

Performance poet Kenny Carnes presents an evening of poetic story telling to honor, recognize and assist today’s returning war veterans and their families. When We Come Home is the summation of war narratives collected from Carnes’ extensive national tour of Pieces of War. This rapid fire journey of rhyme and rhythm weaves a portfolio of stories from three generations of American war fighters. A son returns home from Iraq as his grandfather recalls victories at Normandy while a father becomes lost in his voiceless shame trying to forget Vietnam. Three soldiers battle for personal resolution despite returning home to domestic unrest as they fight to unite their divided neighborhood. Following Carnes’ performance an interactive discussion with veterans, local leaders and community organizers will enrich our exploration of how to best support veterans challenged by their readjustment process at home coming. Experience the spoken word event that loves truth and discovers the meaning of “Support our Troops!”
