An Evening with Elliot Ackerman

Join us for a thought-provoking conversation with New York Times Best Selling author and U.S. Marine Corps Veteran Elliot Ackerman about his new novel “2054” which he co-authored with Admiral James Stavridis, U.S. Navy (Retired). Ackerman will sit down in person with the Patrol Base Abbate Book Club and will discuss the role of AI in future conflicts, as well as the value of literature written by humans in an age where works of art created by AI continue to grow.

“2054” will be available for purchase and signing before and after the conversation.

ELLIOT ACKERMAN is the New York Times bestselling author of the novels “Halcyon, 2034,” “Red Dress In Black and White,” “Waiting for Eden,” “Dark at the Crossing,” and “Green on Blue”, as well as the memoir “The Fifth Act: America’s End in Afghanistan,” and “Places and Names: On War, Revolution and Returning.” His books have been nominated for the National Book Award, the Andrew Carnegie Medal in both fiction and nonfiction, and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize among others. He is a contributing writer at The Atlantic and U.S. Marine Corps Veteran who served five tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, where he received the Silver Star, the Bronze Star for Valor, and the Purple Heart. He divides his time between New York City and Washington, D.C.

The event is finished.
