For those of you in the Washington area, I am chairing a book event and public policy discussion with two-time Pulitzer winner and Washington Post Pentagon correspondent Tom Ricks, whose new book, Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq is hitting the book stores today.
Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, long-time aide to Colin Powell and former Chief of Staff at the Department of State, will offer comments on Rick’s presentation.
The meeting is open to the public — as long as you RSVP in advance. It will take place Friday, 28 July, 1:00 pm until 2:30 pm. Books will be available. It’s a brownbag meeting, so feel free to bring your lunch — but also note that the meeting will be packed.
RSVP to Elizabeth Wu at firstname.lastname@example.org — and say that TWN sent you. The site of the meeting will be the conference room of the New America Foundation at 1630 Connecticut Avenue, NW, 7th Floor, Washington D.C.
