    Harvardwood Heads To... "Is Anybody Listening?" new documentary by Paula J. Caplan

    Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 02:00 PM
    Rockingham Free Public Library in Bellows Falls, VT

    A woman's journey to -- and across -- the soul-destroying chasm between veterans and others.

    Veterans say this about the film: "Shows real understanding of veterans" - "Spectacular!" - "Powerful" - "Deeply moving" - "Important" - "Awesome"

    "Is Anybody Listening?" is a powerful and moving film that gets the non-veteran world interacting with the Veteran as a human being and gives the Veteran the chance to speak and feel safe doing so, something which too rarely happens, Ultimately, both sides are helped to connect, which is essential for us all.
                          --Shad Meshad, Founder and Director, National Veterans Foundation

    Nonveterans say this: "Phenomenal!" - "Brilliant!" - "Impressive" - "Grounded in love" - "Powerful" - "A gem...heartfelt...moved me deeply. I learned something about myself and my relationship with vets - including my silent father... a healing tool for our divided nation."

    Get a year of FREE membership—HOST A SUMMER INTERN (LA & NY)

    What's an easy way to get a year of free Harvardwood membership? Host an intern this summer in Los Angeles or New York!

    Harvardwood seeks accommodations hosts for the 2015 Harvardwood Summer Internship Program (HSIP) participants.

In addition, HSIP facilitates career-related activities throughout the summer for participating students and companies in NYC and LA.

    Because several of these internships are unpaid, many HSIP participants are in need of free or discounted accommodations to help defray the costs of accepting these opportunities.
