In Conversation with Lawrence Wright

Summary

Old Globe Artistic Director Barry Edelstein welcomes Pulitzer Prize winner Lawrence Wright, whose play Camp David concludes the current 2015-2016 season. The two will discuss Wright's presence at the 1978 Camp David accords, and how both the play and the New York Times bestseller Thirteen Days in September came about.

Lawrence Wright is the author of nine books, including Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief, which was recently adapted into an acclaimed HBO documentary. His most recent book, Thirteen Days in September, emerged from the play Camp David (directed by Molly Smith) and was designated by The New York Times as one of the 10 books of 2014. His book The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 won the Pulitzer Prize and was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 best nonfiction books ever written.
