Andrew Lawler: Book Talk & Signing!
We are SO pleased to welcome Andrew Lawler back to the Outer Banks for a book talk and signing featuring his brand-new book Under Jerusalem: The Buried History of the World's Most Contested City publishing November 2. We are partnering up with the Bryan Cultural Series to bring Andrew to town for an evening discussing his book. Under Jerusalem takes readers into the tombs, tunnels, and trenches of the Holy City. It brings to life the indelible characters who have investigated this subterranean landscape. With clarity and verve, acclaimed journalist Andrew Lawler reveals how their pursuit has not only defined the conflict over modern Jerusalem but could provide a map for two peoples and three faiths to peacefully coexist.
Andrew is the author of The Secret Token, one of the best-selling titles at Downtown Books for over three years, which is the best investigation into the disappearance of the Lost Colony that we've ever read, as well as the best-seller Why Did the Chicken Cross the World?. As a journalist, he has written more than a thousand newspaper and magazine articles from more than two dozen countries. His byline has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, National Geographic, Smithsonian, and many others. He is contributing writer for Science and contributing editor for Archaeology. Andrew’s work has appeared several times in The Best of Science and Nature Writing.
This is a free event. Masks are REQUIRED and social distancing will be encouraged. Copies of Under Jerusalem will be available for sale at the event and Andrew will be signing copies after his talk.
