As part of the activities related to Carthage’s new play about female veterans, “Fighting for Home,” Carthage is bringing award-winning author Eileen Rivers to campus to talk about her new book, “Beyond the Call,” which chronicles the stories of three women who fought shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts and worked with Afghan women to restore their lives and push back the Taliban.
Ms. Rivers will speak about her book and offer signed copies for purchase. The event is free and open to the public.
Ms. Rivers has been a journalist for more than 15 years and has written for the Washington Post and USA Today. She is currently a digital content editor for USA Today’s editorial page and a member of their editorial board. She recently won an Emmy for her work on an in-depth multi-part series on prisons and recidivism for USA Today. Her visit is made possible through support from the Equity and Inclusion Certificate Program.

The Carthage Theatre Department presents “Fighting for Home,” a verbatim theatre project by Professor Martin McClendon and directed by Instructor Marcella Kearns.
This play examines the issues of women in the armed forces. Based on interviews with women specifically about issues related to being a female in the military in the last 30 years, “Fighting For Home” will highlight women’s struggles to protect their country from all enemies while they deal with rapidly-changing policies and deeply-entrenched beliefs within the military.
