The Kansas Humanities Council Big Read for 2014 is “The Things They Carried,” Tim O’Brien’s semi-autobiographical account of a platoon and the emotional weight they carry while fighting in the Vietnam War. In a Library Journal review, Mark Annichiarico said, “Not since Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five has the American soldier been portrayed with such poignance and sincerity.”
