Harvard Book Store is pleased to partner with Cambridge READS to host a conversation with journalist SEBASTIAN JUNGER about his book War.
In his breakout bestseller, The Perfect Storm, Sebastian Junger created “a wild ride that brilliantly captures the awesome power of the raging sea and the often futile attempts of humans to withstand it” (Los Angeles Times Book Review). Now, Junger turns his brilliant and empathetic eye to the reality of combat—the fear, the honor, and the trust among men in an extreme situation whose survival depends on their absolute commitment to one another. His on-the-ground account follows a single platoon through a 15-month tour of duty in the most dangerous outpost in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley. Through the experiences of these young men at war, he shows what it means to fight, to serve, and to face down mortal danger on a daily basis.
Tickets are free, limited to 2 per person and will become available October 15th at noon at the following locations: Main Library, Harvard Book Store, Porter Square Books and the Harvard Box Office. Additional details about Cambridge READS programming can be found at www.cambridgereads.org.
Harvard Book Store is currently out of tickets, but please try the other distribution locations.
