In a time when war can break out anywhere at any moment, two distinguished novelists give us insight into their work. Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Olen Butler has constructed a distinguished body of work from his Vietnam experience, most recently in Perfume River. Winston Groom, known for the character immortalized in Forrest Gump, enters a different place in history in El Paso, his new novel of the Mexican Revolution. Longstanding scholar of Vietnam War fiction Randy Fertel moderates.Sponsored by the Ruth U. Fertel Foundation.
