CA – Strategy Strikes Back Signing

Max Brooks (World War Z, The Zombie Survival Guide) discusses and signs Strategy Strikes Back: How Star Wars Explains Modern Military Conflict at Book Soup on Wednesday, May 9th at 7:00 PM.

The most successful film franchise of all time, Star Wars thrillingly depicts an epic multigenerational conflict fought a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. But the Star Wars saga has as much to say about successful strategies and real-life warfare waged in our own time and place. Strategy Strikes Back brings together over thirty of today’s top military and strategic experts, including generals, policy advisors, seasoned diplomats, counterinsurgency strategists, science fiction writers, war journalists, and ground-level military officers, to explain the strategy and the art of war by way of the Star Wars films.

Each chapter of Strategy Strikes Back provides a relatable, outside-the-box way to simplify and clarify the complexities of modern military conflict. (For example: )A chapter on the case for planet building on the forest moon of Endor by World War Z author Max Brooks offers a unique way to understand our own sustained engagement in war-ravaged societies such as Afghanistan. It is a book as captivating and enthralling as Star Wars itself.

AB – Hollywood Babble On LIVE

Ralph Garman & Kevin Smith appear at Myer Horowitz Theatre on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at 8:30 PM for a live recording of their podcast HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON!

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.
