In her most recent book, The Invisible Soldiers: How America Outsourced Our Security, ANN HAGEDORN profiles the members of Congress who recognize the dangers of dependence on private military and security companies (PMSCs) but have been unable to limit them or determine their true scope. Hagedorn was a staff writer for the Wall Street Journal and has taught writing at Northwestern University and Columbia University. New York Times bestselling author MITCHELL ZUCKOFF’s new book, 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi, presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the U.S. State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A journalism professor at Boston University, Zuckoff was also a reporter for the Boston Globe, where he was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize in investigative reporting. A book signing will follow their Forum. Photo Credit for Ann Hagedorn: Jeanie Wulfkuhlefor; Photo Credit for Mitchell Zuckoff: Suzanne Kreiter
