Edward Schwarzschild presents In Security
In conversation with Gilbert King
Edward Schwarzschild (Responsible Men; The Family Diamond) peels back the curtain on the Transportation Security Administration to reveal the human drama hidden behind airport checkpoints in his new book, In Security. Gary Waldman is a grief-stricken former tennis coach slowly reentering the world after the death of his wife. As he struggles to remain a good father to his six-year-old son, Waldman finds unexpected comfort and stability in the rule-bound confines of the TSA, working as a Transportation Security Officer in upstate New York. But after he saves a passenger's life by performing CPR, he suddenly finds his work life, chosen specifically to be uncomplicated, full of daunting challenges. Part airport thriller, part family drama, part love story, In Security explores how those who strive to protect us are often unable to protect themselves. Gilbert King, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Devil in the Grove and Beneath a Ruthless Sun, joins Schwarzschild in conversation at this thrilling virtual book talk.
