SLCL Presents Joby Warrick

Wednesday, February 24, 7pm
 

St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, and Left Bank Books present Joby Warrick, "Red Line: The Unraveling of Syria and America’s Race to Destroy the Most Dangerous Arsenal in the World."

In conversation with National Book Award-nominated author Elliot Ackerman

Pulitzer Prize–winning author Joby Warrick presents the unknown story of America’s mission to find and destroy Syria’s chemical weapons. Following Syrian president Bashar al-Assad’s sarin gas bombing in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta, American intelligence forces launched a race to destroy 1,300 tons of chemical weapons in the midst of a raging civil war. “Red Line” is a classic Joby Warrick true-life thriller: a character-driven narrative with a cast of heroes and villains, including weapons hunters, politicians, doctors, diplomats, and spies. Drawing on astonishing original reporting, Warrick reveals how the United States embarked on a bold adventure to prevent one catastrophe but could not avoid a tragic chain of events that empowered America’s enemies.

Signed books available from Left Bank Books. Curbside pick-up and shipping available.
