Book Discussion Group - CANCELED

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain - presented by NBPL Foundation

BC_BillyLynn'slonghalftimewalkMay 13
The PEN/Hemingway Award-winning author brings to life Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk. A razor-sharp satire set in Texas during America's war in Iraq that explores the gaping national disconnect between the war at home and the war abroad. Ben Fountain’s debut novel follows the surviving members of the heroic Bravo Squad through one exhausting stop in their media-intensive "Victory Tour." Karl Marlantes calls it “The Catch-22 of the Iraq War.”
