Next week, the great local discussion series “War Correspondents at the Brooklyn Brewery,” which launched this spring in Williamsburg, will kick off its impressive fall line-up. New York Times correspondent C.J. Chivers, who covered the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks and has since reported from Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq and Syria, will be the Wednesday September 11 guest of honor.
Chivers will be interviewed by Brooklyn Brewery co-founder Steve Hindy, a one-time AP foreign correspondent. The work of award-winning combat zone photographer Fabio Bucciarelli will also be on display:
A former Marine who served in the 1991 Gulf War, Chivers’ expertise in weaponry and military affairs make him one of the most insightful reporters on conflict today.
All proceeds will go towards Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues (RISC) to train field correspondents in first aid and other necessary lifesaving skills. Tickets are $15 and include one free beer.
Other journalists on tap at the Brewery this fall include ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff (September 30) and former TIME photographer Robert Nickelsberg (October 9), who will be interviewed by The New Yorker‘s Jon Lee Anderson. The series is produced in partnership with Togather, a service that helps authors curate fan-powered events.
