An Evening with Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

Community Event - See description for location
7:30 PM - Add to Outlook calendar  |  Add to Google calendar
For Adults
Join us at the Carroll Arts Center for a special evening with Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, author of Ashley's War. In 2010, the U.S. Army Special Operations Command created Cultural Support Teams, a pilot program to put women on the battlefield alongside Army Rangers, Green Berets, Navy SEALs, and other special operations teams on sensitive missions in Afghanistan. The idea was that women could access places and people that had remained out of reach and could build relationships—woman to woman—in ways that male soldiers in a conservative, traditional country could not. Lemmon uses exhaustive firsthand reporting and a finely tuned understanding of the complexities of war to tell the story of CST–2, a unit of women handpicked from across the Army, and of the remarkable hero at its heart: First Lieutenant Ashley White. A Celebrating America program. Tickets cost $20 and include a copy of Ashley's War. More information and tickets are available at https://library.carr.org/AshleysWar
