In conjunction with the Dayton Literary Peace Prize festivities taking place in early November, Sinclair’s English Department will host the 2017 prize winner for nonfiction, on Monday, November 6 in the library loggia from 12:30-1:30 p.m.

A veteran war reporter, David Wood will discuss his award-winning book, What Have We Done: The Moral Injury of Our Longest Wars, which chronicles the moral costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is a staff correspondent for the Huffington Post, where he won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for national reporting on severely wounded warriors.

Prior to Wood’s visit to campus, a reading of winning and nominated works for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize will be held on Thursday, November 2 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. in the library loggia. A drawing for the books will be held at the end of the reading.
