Please join Busboys and Poets Books as we welcome author Howard Jones to discuss his book "My Lai: Vietnam, 1968 and the Descent into Darkness." My Lai polarized American sentiment. Now 50 years later to the date, author Howard Jones will explain why and discuss his 2017 release of “My Lai: Descent into Darkness.” The New York Times writes that “it is a book at once painful and useful, and is likely to become the standard reference work on My Lai.”
