The second in a series of our book soirees at the Hoover Institution's Washington Office will take place next Tuesday, November 10, when Jack interviews Charlie Savage about his new book, Power Wars: Inside Obama's Post-9/11 Presidency :

Savage’s book will–as the NYT excerpts (here and here) make clear–be deeply interesting to Lawfare readers, as it contains detailed insider accounts of just about all of the important Obama administration legal policy decisions (and some from the Bush administration as well).

This series of monthly book conversations about national security law and policy is sponsored by the Hoover Institution's National Security, Technology, and Law Working Group. The conversations take place at Hoover's offices at 1399 New York Avenue, NW, Suite 500, preceded by a reception with food and drink then filmed and recorded for video airing and podcasting on Lawfare. The first book conversation occurred last month when Ben interviewed Will McCants and Joby Warrick about their new books on ISIS. The podcast for that event can be found here.

Space for the November 10 event, which will take place between 5 pm and 7 pm. is limited. Here is the invitation. RSVPs are required. We hope you will try to come.
