The Fighters

The voice of infantry veteran and Pulitzer Prize winner C.J. Chivers brings to life in The Fighters the stories and sacrifices of individual combatants in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. This portrait of modern warfare unflinchingly reconstructs experiences of soldiers, Navy corpsmen, Marines, and helicopter pilots. The New York Times calls it a "classic of war reporting" that gives "heart-rending meaning to the lives and deaths of these men and women, even if policymakers generally have not." 

Free! No reservation required to attend the event.

Presented in partnership with Friends of the Highland Park Library and Friends of the SMU Libraries.

A book signing follows the presentation for those who choose to purchase books.
