Sid Balman Jr. - Seventh Flag

Upcoming Event
Sunday, January 12, 2020 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

A Pulitzer-nominated former national security correspondent for United Press International and specialist in behavior-change communications, Balman turns to historical fiction to explore what it means to be an American in a divided nation. Set in a small West Texas town, his novel follows the intertwined stories of two families, one Irish American, the other descended from a Syrian Muslim man who came to the U.S. in the 1800s to help President Pierce start the Army’s Camel Corps. As one generation follows another, Balman traces shifting socio-cultural paradigms, outlining the growth of a diverse, global Texas, united under a seventh flag.
