Marcus Luttrell Update: Appearance In Illinois

May 12, 2008

I know from the responses we’ve gotten here on our stories about Marcus Luttrell, that many of you are chomping at the bit, to get an opportunity to hear Marcus speak and perhaps get the opportunity to meet him, shake his hand and tell him how much you appreciate his service to our country. Well, if you’re in the Chicago area, that opportunity will be upon you before you know it!

I just recently got word from one of our reader’s Haole Wahine that Marcus has an appearance scheduled at the Pritzker Military Library in Chicago on Monday, May 19th at 3pm. The event is free to the public. So, if you’re in the Chicago area and you’re able to attend this event, I encourage you to do so. Believe me when I say, you’ll be quite impressed with Marcus.

On Monday, May 19, Marcus Luttrell will appear at the Pritzker Military Library to discuss his memoir, Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10, in an interview with executive producer Ed Tracy. This event is free and open to the public. The presentation and live webcast will begin at 3:00 p.m. It will also be recorded for later broadcast on WYCC-TV/Channel 20. Please not that there will not be a reception prior to the event, but copies of Lone Survivor will be available for purchase and signing by Luttrell afterward.

On the same day, the Pritzker Military Library will also partner with The Book Stall at Chestnut Court and a downtown club for a luncheon featuring Marcus Luttrell.

For more information about this event, as well as ones planned in the future, visit the Pritzler Military Library website.

    Thanks for mentioning our event!

    We’re getting close to capacity already, so if anyone reading this would like to attend, please send us an email or call to make a reservation, and we’ll make sure you have a seat.

    And for anyone who can’t make it to Chicago that day, we do take questions from people watching our live webcasts, so you’ll still have a chance to send a question or a comment to Marcus Luttrell.

    My pleasure Mark. We’ve had readers of the blog ask frequently if Marcus would be appearing in their area, so anytime we hear about a new appearance, we try to get it on the blog, so our readers can hopefully attend the events.

    I was wondering if anyone had Marc’s contact or agent contact or any news on Texas signings. I was trying to purchase a few signed copies of his Lone Survivor books for our school library and NJROTC program.

Got something to say?
