Book Signing: Sid Balman presents “Seventh Flag”
November 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
“Seventh Flag” looks at the basic question of identity and citizenship in America, through the lens of Texas, a land over which six flags have flown. The seventh flag is not one of a state or a nation, but a mosaic of cultures, religions and people from every corner of the world struggling to define what it means to be unified under an ambiguous banner.
Sid Balman – a fourth generation Texan – is a Pulitzer-nominated national security correspondent and a specialist in behavior-change communications, Sid Balman has covered wars in the Persian Gulf, Somalia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo; and travelled extensively with two American presidents and four secretaries of state on overseas diplomatic missions.
