James Verini - They Will Have to Die Now

Mosul and the Fall of the Caliphate, a History Book Talk & Signing

James Verini arrived in Iraq in the summer of 2016 to write about life in the Islamic State. He stayed to cover the jihadis' last great stand, the Battle of Mosul, not knowing it would go on for nearly a year, nor that it would become, in the words of the Pentagon, "the most significant urban combat since WWII."

Verini will discuss and sign They Will Have to Die Now: Mosul and the Fall of the Caliphate ($27.95 W. W. Norton & Company), which takes the reader into the heart of the conflict against the most lethal insurgency of our time. We see unspeakable violence, improbable humanity, and occasional humor. Verini also relates the rich history of Iraq, and of Mosul, one of the most beguiling cities in the Middle East.
