Frank Delaney moderates a conversation with an esteemed panel of writers for a witty and engrossing literary salon on the topic of "Military Histories." Panelists include journalist and author Mark Harris (author of Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War); award-winning professor, author, and military historian John C. McManus (author of The Dead and Those About to Die: The Big Red One at Omaha Beach, and Alamo in the Ardennes: The Untold Story of the American Soldiers Who Made the Defense of Bastogne Possible); biographer, journalist, and screenwriter Amanda Vaill (author of Hotel Florida, on the tangled Spanish Civil War destinies of Ernest Hemingway, Martha Gellhorn and Robert Capa); and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Finkel (author of bestselling and award-winning The Good Soldiers and critically acclaimed Thank You For Your Service). The evening will be presented at Sebastian Junger and Scott Anderson's The Half King.

A special menu will be available for those who wish to linger for conversation and book signings. This event is likely to sell out as space is very limited. Please book early.
