He’s the reporter who doesn’t stop. Meet Jeremy Scahill, in his prime as one of the biggest rabble-rousing investigative reporters and authors there is. Best known for his foreign reporting, Scahill is the author of best-selling novels: Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield (his documentary of the same name garnered an Academy Award nomination in 2014) and Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army. A co-founder of The Intercept, the news publication known for reporting on the Edward Snowden-leaked National Security Agency documents, Scahill continues to scrutinize American-led actions and practices at home and overseas as the government seeks to combat terrorism.


Each ticket purchase includes a copy of Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield.
In Dirty Wars, Jeremy Scahill takes us inside America's new covert wars. The foot soldiers in these battles operate globally and inside the United States with orders from the White House to do whatever is necessary to hunt down, capture or kill individuals designated by the president as enemies.
