The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Looming Tower explores the history, culture, and politics of Texas, while holding the stereotypes up for rigorous scrutiny.

Lawrence Wright is a staff writer for The New Yorker, and the author of nine books. The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 won the Lionel Gelber Award for Nonfiction and the Pulitzer Prise for General Nonfiction. His most recent book, Thirteen Days in September: Carter, Begin, and Sadat at Camp David, was named by Publisher’s Weekly one of the top ten books of the year.

This event is part of the “Books that Matter” series, sponsored by the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History.
