On Monday, June 27th at 7:00pm at Coronado Public Library Warwick’s, in partnership with Coronado Public Library, will host tim Kennedy as he discusses and signs his new book, Scars and Stripes: An Unapologetically American Story of Fighting the Taliban, UFC Warriors, and MyselfTim Kennedy is a Green Beret sniper and former MMA fighter. He has starred on the History Channel's Hunting Hitler and Discovery's Hard to Kill. He owns Ranger Up, a premium apparel company, and Sheepdog Response, a tactical training company. 

Tim Kennedy has a problem: he only feels alive right before he's about to die. Kennedy, a Green Beret, decorated Army sniper, and UFC headliner, has tackled a bull with his bare hands, jumped out of airplanes, dove to the depths of the ocean, and traveled the world hunting poachers, human traffickers, and the Taliban.

But he's also the same man who got kicked out of the police department, fire department, and as an EMT, before getting two women pregnant four days apart, and finally, been beaten up by his Special Forces colleagues for, quite simply, "being a selfish asshole."

In Scars and Stripes, Kennedy describes how these failures shaped him into the successful businessman and devoted husband and father he is today. Through unbelievably vivid, wild anecdotes Kennedy reveals all the dumb, violent, embarrassing, and undeniably heroic things he's done in his life, including multiple combat missions in Afghanistan, building a school in Texas for elementary kids, and creating two-multimillion-dollar businesses. You will learn that failure isn't the end - rather it's the first step towards unearthing the best version of yourself and finding success, no matter how overwhelming the setbacks may feel.
