On Thursday, June 2nd at 7:30pm Warwick's will host Michelle Black as she discusses and signs the new paperback edition of her book, Sacrifice: The Green Berets, a Fateful Ambush, and a Gold Star Widow's Fight for the Truth. Michelle Black is a mother of two boys, a Gold Star wife, and an author. As the first woman in her family to graduate high school, she attended California Polytechnic State University where she graduated with a degree in environmental sciences and horticulture. Michelle has a passion for writing. She has been published in the New York Times, The Daily Beast, and Task & Purpose. She lives in Washington State.

When Green Beret Bryan Black was killed in an ambush in Niger in 2017, his wife Michelle saw her worst nightmare become a reality. She was left alone with her grief and with two young sons to raise. But what followed Bryan's death was an even more difficult journey for the young widow. After receiving very few details about the attack that took her husband's life, it was up to Michelle to find answers. It became her mission to learn the truth about that day in Niger - and Sacrifice is the result of that mission.

In this heartbreaking and revelatory memoir, Michelle uses exclusive interviews with the survivors of her husband's unit, research into the military leadership and accountability, and her own unique vantage point as a gold-star widow to tell a previously unknown story. Sacrifice is both an honest, emotional look inside a military marriage and a searing investigation of the people and decisions at the heart of the US military.
