A Reading and Conversation with Hampton Sides
11:00-12:00, October 25, 2013
Chan Classroom, Anderson Academic Commons
Hampton Sides is a prolific award-winning feature journalist and historian whose subjects have ranged from the Bataan Death March to the U.S. men's soccer team, from Greenland to New Mexico. Next year Doubleday will publish his latest book, In the Kingdom of Ice. He's a contributing editor for Outside (whose October issue includes his essay about flesh eating bacteria and mortality), National Geographic (recently writing about a Russian wildlife refuge and about images of The Titanic), The New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine, and many other periodicals.
Sides is author of four bestselling books of historical narrative, including Ghost Soldiers, a World War II volume that sold over a million copies worldwide and was the basis for the film The Great Raid; Blood and Thunder, about the life and times of controversial frontiersman Kit Carson; and Hellhound On His Trail, about the manhunt for Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassin, James Earl Ray.
