When veterans return home, many of them suffer post-traumatic stress disorder, which is commonly attributed to the horrors experienced in war. But bestselling author of The Perfect Storm and War, Sebastian Junger, has another theory--that returning veterans also experience deep withdrawals from the tribe-like sense of belonging that soldiers experience when living and working together at war. Combining history, psychology and anthropology, Junger's new book Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging, explores what we can learn from tribal societies about loyalty, belonging, and the eternal human quest for meaning--and how we can adapt our modern world to help ourselves--and our veterans--live with purpose and connection.
On Thursday, June 9, at 7PM, Junger will speak in conversation with Bill Nigut of GPB (Georgia Public Broadcasting) at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library, to be recorded live for Nigut's program, "Two Way Street."
Tickets are free with the purchase of a book ($24), with an additional charge of $6 if guests would like to bring a "plus one."
