The next in our series of soirees at the Hoover Institution's Washington Office will take place on Wednesday, when Ben interviews Walter Pincus about his new essay, "Reflections on Secrecy and the Press from a Life in Journalism." This series of conversations about national security law and policy, mostly focused on books, 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. Space for the July 20 event, which will take place between 5 pm and 7 pm, is limited and recent events have filled up, so please RSVP quickly. RSVPs are required. Here is the invitation. We hope to see you there.
