Waiting for Eden Book Celebration & Launch of the Adrienne Arsht Center for Resilience Bookshelf
By Adrienne Arsht Center for Resilience
The Adrienne Arsht Center for Resilience Bookshelf launch event featured a discussion on the first book added to the Bookshelf – Waiting for Eden, by Elliot Ackerman. Ackerman and ADM James Stavridis, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe, discussed the novel, which tells the story of a soldier trapped inside his own body and mind as a result of injuries that he suffered after an IED explosion in Iraq.
The Bookshelf, located at the Atlantic Council’s headquarters, is accompanied by an online site, which is currently in the “soft launch” phase, with a formal launch slated for December 2018. In 2019, the Atlantic Council will unveil the Adrienne Arsht Center for Resilience Book Award – a stamp of approval for the best resilience-related works.
