When: Tue., March 16, 7:30 p.m. 2010

First published in 1990, Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried is a classic collection of intertwined stories based on his years as a soldier in Vietnam. Its noble, terrified, pious, and ultimately doomed characters ring so true as to blur the lines between fiction and memoir. O'Brien introduces the twentieth-anniversary edition at the First Congregational Church of Berkeley (2345 Channing Way, Berkeley) on Tuesday, Mar. 16. 7:30 p.m., $12-$15.
