Tattered Cover Book Signings

When: Tue., June 1, 7:30 p.m. 2010

If you've never read Sebastian Junger, picture the action, excitement and danger of a Jon Krakauer work, then add a few extra doses of flying bullets. We're talking war-zone writing, beyond adventure prose. Junger, a regular contributor to publications like Vanity Fair, Outside and National Geographic — best known for his novel-turned-film The Perfect Storm — recently won a Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize for his domestic documentary Restrepo. It follows a platoon through a 15-month tour of duty in Afghanistan's deadly Korengal Valley, as does Junger's new book War. The author will speak on his experience being embedded with the troops and sign copies of War at 7:30 tonight at Tattered Cover (2526 E. Colfax Ave., Denver, tatteredcover.com). Visit sebastianjunger.com for more. — Matthew Schniper
