This month, we will discuss One Second After, a post-apocalyptic thriller of the after effects in the United States after a terrifying terrorist attack using electromagnetic pulse weapons. New York Times bestselling author, William R. Forstchen, now brings us a story which can be all too terrifyingly real…a story in which one man struggles to save his family and his small North Carolina town after America loses a war, in one second, a war that will send America back to the Dark Ages…A war based upon a weapon, an Electro Magnetic Pulse. A weapon that may already be in the hands of our enemies.
Months before its publication, One Second After had already been cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book being discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at a weapon and its awesome power to destroy the entire United States, literally within one second. It is a weapon that The Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. This book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future…and our end.

Please RSVP to Melissa in advance of the program at: (847) 510-2060.
