David E. Sanger to discuss the political climate

New York Times’ National Security Correspondent David E. Sanger returns to Weston Playhouse for a special one-night-only lecture at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19:  A World Turned Upside Down: Russia, North Korea, and the Crises of the Trump Era.

Tickets are $45 and are on sale now and include Sanger’s take on current events, and a moderated audience question and answer session, followed by a book signing reception for Sanger’s newest release The Perfect Weapon: War, Sabotage, and Fear in the Cyber Age,  plus an opportunity to meet, mingle, and discuss.

Sanger is a national security correspondent and a Times senior writer. In a 36-year reporting career for The New York Times, he has been on three teams that have won Pulitzer Prizes, most recently in 2017 for international reporting.

He is also the author of two Times best sellers on foreign policy and national security: “The Inheritance: The World Obama Confronts and the Challenges to American Power,” published in 2009, and “Confront and Conceal: Obama’s Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power,” published in 2012.

In reporting for The Times and “Confront and Conceal,” he revealed the story of Olympic Games, the code name for the most sophisticated cyberattack in history, the American-Israeli effort to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program with the Stuxnet worm. His journalistic pursuit of the origins of Stuxnet became the subject of the documentary “Zero Days,” which made the short list of Academy Award documentaries in 2016.

With Graham T. Allison Jr., he co-teaches Central Challenges in American National Security, Strategy and the Press at the Kennedy School of Government.

All proceeds benefit the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company.
