Event Details

“There is no journalist in America who has exposed the truth about US government militarism more bravely, more relentlessly and more valuably than Jeremy Scahill.”

--Glenn Greenwald


 

Jeremy Scahill will discuss his New York Times bestselling book and now Oscar-nominated documentary Dirty Wars. Scahill has done critical work to uncover one of the most important foreign policy stories of our time. From Afghanistan to Yemen, Somalia and beyond, Scahill reports from the frontlines of America’s War on Terror. The talk will be followed by a conversation with Gary Younge, columnist for the Guardian and author of The Speech.


A book signing will follow the event.


JEREMY SCAHILL is the author, most recently, of Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield, and writer/producer on the Oscar-nominated documentary Dirty Wars. His previous book is the international bestseller Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army, which was hailed as “a crackling exposé” by The New York Times Book Review. He is a contributor to the recently announced venture First Look Media and a Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow at The Nation Institute.

 

GARY YOUNGE is an author, broadcaster, and award-winning columnist for the Guardian, based in Chicago. He also writes a monthly column for The Nation magazine and is the Alfred Knobler Fellow for The Nation Institute.
