World Affairs Council of Dallas-Fort Worth presents Lawrence Wright
Lawrence Wright, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and Austin-based staff writer for The New Yorker, will discuss his latest book, The Terror Years: From al-Qaeda to the Islamic State, at a World Affairs Council program.
Wright, a 1965 Dallas Woodrow Wilson High School graduate, won the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction in 2007 with The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11. His works include plays, movie scripts and books on topics ranging from Scientology, the Middle East and twins to a memoir of Dallas titled In the New World: Growing Up with America from the Sixties to the Eighties, described as “the autobiography of a generation.”
The Council program, presented in partnership with the DMA’s Arts & Letters Live, will be followed by a book signing.
