“What Have We Done: The Moral Injury of Our Longest Wars” by David Wood

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Wood, author of “What Have We Done,” will offer a free reading and discussion of his book. Wood’s appearance is in support of Local Theater Company’s fall production, Paper Cut, a world premiere play by Andrew Rosendorf that offers a glimpse into the emotional toll of war on our military.

A birthright Quaker and raised as a pacifist, he has spent more than 30 years covering the U.S. military and conflicts around the world, most recently in extended deployments embedded with American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
