KC Author Whitney Terrell Comments On Iraq War In New Novel

While Whitney Terrell was writing The King of Kings County, a novel based in 1950s Kansas, America was invading Iraq. His strong feelings about the war drove him to embed with reporters in Iraq, and the result is his latest novel about war, companionship and the folly of combat. 

Whitney Terrell will speak about his latest novel, 'The Good Lieutenant' at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 2 at Unity Temple on the Plaza. For tickets and information, visit
