Tickets on sale July 28, 2016.

Sebastian Junger, author of War and The Perfect Storm takes readers on an investigation of how we overcome trauma and seek something bigger than ourselves. Combining history, psychology, and anthropology Tribe explores loyalty, belonging, and the human quest for meaning, focusing on the irony that – for many veterans, as well as civilians- war feels better than peace, adversity can turn out to be a blessing, and disasters can be remembered fondly for the strength we show when we come together.








Colson Whitehead, author of The Underground Railroad

Interviewer to be announced

Colson Whitehead, author of Zone One, The Intuitionist, and John Henry Days, has created a wrenching, thrilling journey through both time and space, chronicling a young slave’s desperate bid for freedom, and a heroine’s flight that serves as a powerful meditation on both history and the present day. Praising Colson Whitehead early in his career, John Updike wrote: “Whitehead’s writing does what wring should do; it refreshes our sense of the world.”
