Join Always United for a look inside of Algerian Diary: Frank Kearns and the
“Impossible Assignment” for CBS News written by Gerald Davis.

At a time when nobody else cared about this part of the world Frank Kearns
covered the most dangerous stories in Africa and the Middle East in the
1950s, ‘60s and early ‘70s for CBS News. By his own account, he was
nearly killed 114 times. Davis’ book and documentary keeps Kearns legacy
alive.

In addition to discussing the book, you'll have the opportunity to learn more
about the Emmy award winning documentary Frank Kearns: American Correspondent
Davis co-produced.

Books will be available for purchase at the event.
