Reading: Ranger Games by Ben Blum
Open Book, Target Performance Hall
1011 Washington Ave. S
Milkweed Books is pleased to present Ben Blum, author of RANGER GAMES, his first book of nonfiction. Join us in the Target Performance Hall as Ben reads from RANGER GAMES, the story of Ben's young cousin who schocked his family and community by committing armed robbery just before he was set to deploy to Iraq as a U.S. Army Ranger. John Krakauer describes RANGER GAMES as "an astonishing book, unlike anything else I have ever read," and Mary Gaitskill calls it "one of those rare books that illuminates its subject beyond what you thought possible."
BEN BLUM was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. He holds a PhD in computer science from the University of California Berkeley, where he was a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow, and an MFA in fiction from New York University, where he was awarded the New York Times Foundation Fellowship. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and stepdaughter.
