NEWSLETTER: Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
Dear Readers,

Nearly ten years ago we published a remarkable book called Seabiscuit that captured the nation's heart and went on to become a major motion picture. It wasn't just about a horse, it was a portrait of American history as well as a universal story about an underdog.

In her long-awaited new book, Unbroken, Laura Hillenbrand has done it again. Writing with the same immediacy and vivid narrative voice, she tells the unforgettable story of Louis Zamperini, a man who journeyed into extremity and persevered. Louis ran in the 1936 Berlin Olympics nearly breaking the record four-minute mile. But war interrupted and overnight the athlete became an airman. When his plane crashed into the Pacific, Louis was set adrift on a raft. What followed is an extraordinary true tale of sacrifice and heroism.

Like Seabiscuit, Louis is an unlikely hero. And like Seabiscuit, this is a book you simply can't miss.
