Event Details

Sebastian Junger in Conversation with Rob Harris

Sebastian Junger's most recent book: TRIBE “is about the positive effects of community and tribalism on the human experience,” says Junger, an American journalist, author and filmmaker who grew up in Belmont, Massachusetts, in the very neighborhood of the “Boston Strangler” that later inspired his 2006 book A DEATH IN BELMONT. 

In 1997, with the publication of his first book, THE PERFECT STORM, Junger was touted as a new Hemingway. His work stimulated a renewed interest in adventure non-fiction.

He received a National Magazine Award in 2000 for “The Forensics of War,” published in Vanity Fair, where he works as a contributing editor. In early 2007 he reported from Nigeria on the subject of blood oil. With the photographer Tim Hetherington, Junger received the DuPont-Columbia Award for broadcast journalism for his work on The Other War: Afghanistan, produced with ABC News and Vanity Fair, which appeared on Nightline in September 2008.

Junger went on to scribe the books FIRE and WAR which revolved around his time spent with a United States Army platoon of the 173rd Airborne in Afghanistan. Junger, along with Hetherington, used material gathered in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan for the book and to create a documentary feature Restrepo. It was nominated for an Academy Award, and won the Grand Jury Prize for documentary at Sundance Film Festival in 2011. On April 27, 2011, Junger was presented with the “Leadership in Entertainment Award” by Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America for his work on Restrepo.
