David Finkel - October 16, 2013
Time magazine editor-at-large David Von Drehle conducted a public conversation with Washington Post reporter David Finkel on the Aftermath of the Long War, the fourth offering of the Library's Dateline: Washington series.
Finkel was embedded with an infantry combat team in Iraq—an experience that resulted in his book The Good Soldiers. He followed those soldiers once they returned to the States, resulting in a second volume, the just-published Thank You for Your Service. Finkel, a 2012 MacArthur Fellow, won a Pulitzer Prize in 2006 for his reporting on U.S.-funded democracy efforts in Yemen.
