In her new book, The Fine Art of War author, Lauren Kay Johnson  recounts a powerful coming-of-age narrative against the backdrop of war. From a child’s perspective of watching her mother leave and return home to a hero’s welcome to that of a young idealist volunteering to deploy to Afghanistan who, war-worn, eventually questions her place in the war, the military, and her family history—and their place within her.

On this episode of The Public Eye Al is joined by Lauren Kay Johnson.
