$10 for public, free to NAU and CCC faculty, staff, and students

By the time Eric Fair leaves Iraq after his first deployment in 2004, he had participated in and witnessed a variety of aggressive interrogation techniques,including sleep deprivation, stress positions, diet manipulation, exposure, and isolation. Fair was working in Iraq as an interrogator with a private contractor. Years later—his health and marriage crumbled and haunted by the role he played in what we now know as “enhanced interrogation”—Fair, an army veteran, started to speak out. Spare and haunting, his book Consequence: A Memoir is a brave, unrelenting confession, questioning the very depths of who he, and we as a country, have become.

Fair won a Pushcart prize for his 2012 essay “Consequence,” published first in Ploughshares and then in Harper’s Magazine. His op-eds on interrogation have also been published in The Washington Post and The New York Times.

Sponsored by Martin-Springer Institute, with support of NAU’s Student Activities Council.
