BookPeople will present Mark Bowden, author of the blockbuster bestseller, Black Hawk Down, who will talk about his new book, Hue 1968: A Turning Point of the American War in Vietnam. The book tells the story of the Battle of Hue at the start of the Tet Offensive. The Wall Street Journal has called it “an incredible feat of journalism,” as Bowden has reconstructed the 24-day battle through interviews with participants on both sides, and five years of research.

The speaking portion of this event is free & open to the public. Tickets are required to join the signing line; tickets are only available with the purchase of a copy of Hue 1968 from BookPeople.
