Uncertain Ground: An Evening with Phil Klay and Kori Schake

Event Date: May 17, 2022 8:00 pm

The chasm between the military and the civilian in American life, and the moral blind spot it has created, is one of the great themes of “Uncertain Ground”, Phil Klay’s powerful series of reckonings with some of our country’s thorniest concerns, written in essay form over the past ten years. When Phil Klay left the Marines a decade ago after serving as an officer in Iraq, he found himself a part of the community of veterans who have no choice but to grapple with the meaning of their wartime experiences—for themselves and for the country

Books & Books was excited to join forces with Miami Book Fair and our indie bookstore partners Harvard Book Store and Politics and Prose for this special conversation with Phil Klay.
