2nd Monday: "Moral Injury" Book Talk
Date: 05/14/2018
Time: 7:00:00 PM
Description:
  Monday May 14, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Book Talk with David Wood on What Have We Done.
--In 2017, What Have We Done won the Dayton Literary Peace Prize for non-fiction. David Wood, a veteran war reporter, won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for national reporting on wounded warriors. A birthright Quaker and raised as a pacifist, Wood has spent more than 30 years covering conflicts around the world, most recently in extended deployments embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Summary: Most Americans are now familiar with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In this groundbreaking new book, journalist David Wood examines the far more pervasive, yet less understood, experience of those we send to war: moral injury.
--Moral Injury is the violation of our fundamental values of right and wrong that so often occurs in the impossible moral dilemmas of modern conflict. Featuring portraits of combat veterans, leading mental health researchers, and young Americans deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, What Have We Done offers an unflinching look at war and those who volunteer for it: the thrill and pride in service and, too often, the scars of moral injury.
Free and open to the public. Bethesda Chevy Chase Service Center 4805 Edgemoor Lane, Bethesda (half a block from the Bethesda Metro Station). Parking garage in the building.
Sponsored by Bethesda Friends Meeting.
