War Is Hell
When it comes to you-are-there reporting, Sebastian Junger is top of the heap: The best-selling and award-winning author of The Perfect Storm and A Death in Belmont knows how to weave a yarn around straight facts with gripping and thought-provoking results, regardless of the subject. Jungers new book, War, an account of his fifteen-month embed with the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team in the dangerous Korengal Valley of eastern Afghanistan, is bound to hit more than a few nerves over the hot-button issues that war provokes back here in the United States.
Junger, whos also co-director of Restrepo, a documentary shot in Korengal (talk about immersion), will read passages from War at a 7:30 p.m. book signing at the Tattered Cover Book Store, 2526 East Colfax Avenue; for more information, visit www.tatteredcover.com or call 303-322-7727.
Tue., June 1, 7:30 p.m., 2010
