Fall for the Book will bring an unusual format, “Q&A Café at Mason,” to showcase nationally known journalists Michael Isikoff of Newsweek and David Corn of The Nation as they discuss their new book, “Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal and the Selling of the Iraq War.”

The dinner and discussion will be held Wednesday, Oct. 4, at 6 p.m. in the Arlington Campus Original Building, Room 329. The event will be hosted and moderated by Carol Joynt, veteran journalist, network news producer and owner of the Q&A Café at Nathans restaurant in Georgetown.

According to its authors, “Hubris” connects the dots between the Bush administration and the Iraq war. Isikoff and Corn will discuss their findings that President George Bush took the nation to war with faulty intelligence.

This event is sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences, the School of Public Policy and the SPP Alumni Association.

Admission is $20 in advance, $30 at the door. To make a reservation, call 703-993-2853. Credit cards will be accepted by phone; or check, credit or cash will be accepted at the door.
