On Monday (next Monday!), January 14th, Jake Tapper (from ABC News, now at CNN)) will be in Wilmington signing books and participating in an event to discuss the topic of this book with 4 of the participants. Tapper has a recent book, called The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor. This book tells the story of an attack on an American outpost in Afghanistan — Compound Outpost Keating — where 53 American soldiers were attacked by 400 Taliban fighters. There will be two events on the evening of the 14th:
First, the Ninth St. Bookshop will host a book-signing featuring Tapper at their bookshop from 5 until 6. Remember that the bookshop has moved from Ninth St to a glorious new shop at 730 N Market St.
Second, at 6:30 the same evening, the action moves up to The Grand, where Tapper will be joined by 4 of the soldiers from that battle for a moderated discussion until 7:30. Tapper will be signing his book again after this discussion at the Grand until 8:15.
Both events are free to the public (you clearly have to buy a book to get it signed) and seats at the Grand event are free, but first come, first served.
