An Evening with Authors Nick Laidlaw and Andrew Biggio: Oral History in the Age of Social Media
Join the NVMM and Patrol Base Abbate for a thought-provoking conversation with authors and U.S. Marine Corps Veterans Andrew Biggio and Nick Laidlaw as they discuss their books, “The Rifle 2: Back to the Battlefield” and “What War Did To Us: Ukraine.” They will discuss their experiences of documenting the human experience of combat and war by using social media and historic artifacts.
Both books will be available for purchase, and for the authors to sign before and after the conversation. Although “The Rifle 2” will not be officially released until September 19, the NVMM will have advance copies available for attendees of this event.
Additional information will be available that evening for Veterans and active-duty service members interested in learning more about the mission of PB Abbate and ways to get involved with the organization.
Doors will open at 6 p.m. Tickets are free for Veterans, Active-Duty Service Members, and NVMM Members, and $10 for all others.
