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.
