Tim O’Brien at Sierra Nevada College from Sierra Nevada College on Vimeo.

The book “The Things They Carried,” by author and Vietnam
Veteran Tim O’Brien, was chosen as a community read at Sierra Nevada College.
This short video documents O’Brien’s visit to the university, and nearby Incline
High School. The video includes excerpts from an interview conducted by Jason
Paladino, a student writer for “The Eagle’s Eye,” the college newspaper, and a
story told by O’Brien after a public lecture and conversation with author and
Iraq Veteran Brian Turner, director of Sierra Nevada College’s MFA Writing
Program. The video was shot and edited by SNC students Nick Cahill and Trevor
Jackson, in collaboration with Associate Professor of Digital Art Chris
Lanier.
