AMERICAN SNIPER Co-Author Scott McEwen Set for Gallo Center for the Arts, 10/3
In a special appearance to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, co-author Scott McEwen will give an inside look at the writing of the best-selling autobiography, "American Sniper," when he appears at the Gallo Center for the Arts at 7:30 pm on Thursday, October 3.
Tickets for the event are $12, $15 and $25, and may be purchased online at GalloArts.org, by calling (209) 338-2100, or from the Gallo Center ticket office at 1000 I Street in downtown Modesto.
McEwen is a trial attorney in San Diego who works with and provides support for several military charitable organizations, including the Seal Team Foundation. His patriotism, interest in military history, and experience with long-range hunting rifles, compelled him to accurately record the battlefield heroics of Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. Written with Kyle and Jim DeFelice, "American Sniper" became #1 New York Times best seller. In this speaking engagement, McEwen will share his perspective on the experiences that brought the book to life. He is donating his time and a percentage of the proceeds from the event will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
