100 years ago, USS Olympia carried the remains of the Unknown Soldier from Le Havre, France to the United States on the way to his final resting place, Arlington National Cemetery. On the way, the Unknown Solider (and his accompanying crew) were almost lost as they sailed through a category four hurricane.

Over the course of this year, we will be hosting pop-up discussions where, inspired by this voyage, we will examine a wide range of difficult journeys home. Keep your eyes on our social media channels and our calendar as this is where we will be offering our book recommendations and letting you know about our next pop-up Zoom discussion.
