Craig Werner and Douglas Bradley, authors of We Gotta Get Out of This Place

A Room of One's Own is delighted to welcome Douglas Bradley and Craig Werner for a reading and book signing of their book about the music of the Vietnam War!

In We Gotta Get Out of This Place: The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War, Doug Bradley and Craig Werner explore how and why U.S. troops turned to music as a way of coping with the complexities of the war they had been sent to fight. The personal reflections of the Vietnam veterans—black and white, Latino and Native American, men and women, officers and “grunts”—drive this book’s narrative.
