Description

Join author and journalist Adam Makos as he discusses his work chronicling the legendary stories of the Greatest Generation and those men from different worlds who became brothers.

Inspired by his grandfathers’ WWII stories, Adam has interviewed countless veterans from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and present-day wars. In pursuit of a story, he has flown a WWII bomber, accompanied a Special Forces raid in Iraq, and organized an expedition into North Korea in search of an American serviceman MIA. 

These days, the Associated Press has called Adam, “a masterful storyteller,” and the Los Angeles Times said he’s “…in the top ranks of military writers.” His book, “A Higher Call” has spent an incredible 23 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Now, Adam will travel from his home in Denver to share some unparalleled insights into the heroes behind his books, A Higher Call, Voices of the Pacific, and Devotion

A book sale and signing will follow the presentation.
