As a U.S. Marine serving in the 1990 Gulf War, Anthony Swofford lived in the sand, coped with boredom and fear, pulled a gun on a fellow marine, and came under both enemy and friendly fire. His memoir Jarhead became a movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Now Swofford looks at the lessons of his military service.Co-sponsored by the Writers at Work Roundtable and the UMKC English Department; organized by Kansas City author Whitney Terrell.
