About this Event

**Pre-order your copy of the book here for priority placement in the signing line.**

Meet Andrew Marble, the author who wrote Boy on the Bridge, the first-ever biography of John Shalikashvili, one of the United States's greatest military leaders. Exhibiting a unique and unconventional leadership style, Shalikashvili employed expertise, humility, straightforwardness, and empathy to adroitly resolve or prevent destructive conflict to benefit the United States, Europe, and beyond.

A WWII refugee, Shalikashvili and his family emigrated to the United States in 1952. He was drafted into the army as a private in 1958 and rose steadily through the ranks, serving in every level of unit command from platoon to division. In 1993 Shalikashvili was tapped by President Bill Clinton to replace General Colin Powell as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, becoming the first immigrant, first draftee, and first Officer Candidate School graduate to hold the position.

Join us as we honor this esteemed military veteran and learn more about him with biographer Andrew Marble.
