Religious Faith and Modern War: A Literary Journey

Religious Faith and Modern War

20 October 2016
4th Floor, Information Commons, Lake Shore Campus

Event is free and open to the public.

Phil Klay, Jesuit-educated writer and veteran has won wide acclaim for his National Book Award winning collection of short stories, Redeployment. The collection tells vivid stories of how soldiers and veterans involved in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan grapple with traumatic realities. New York Times Critic Dexter Filkins writes that, "It's the best thing written so far on what the war did to people's souls." Klay's lecture is entitled, "Religious Faith and Modern War," as he weaves together the role that his faith has had both as a US Marine and as a writer.

Phil Klay is a graduate of Regis High School in New York City, and Dartmouth College. A US Marine Corps veteran, he served in Iraq's Anbar Province from January 2007 to February 2008 as a Public Affairs Officer.
