On Wednesday, August 12th at 4:00pm Warwick's will host Chas Smith as he discusses his new book, Reports from Hell. Chas Smith is the author of Cocaine + Surfing and Welcome to Paradise, Now Go to Hell, which was optioned for television by Fox 21 (Homeland and Sons of Anarchy) with producers at Television 360 (Game of Thrones) and a finalist for the PEN Center USA Award for Nonfiction. Chas began his writing career as a foreign correspondent, penning pieces for Vice, Paper, and Blackbook, amongst others, from Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, Somalia, Azerbaijan and Colombia which led to a brief career as a war correspondent for Current TV. After being kidnapped by Hezbollah during the 2006 Israel-Lebanon war he transitioned to surf journalism where he was a featured writer at the brash Stab before becoming Editor at Large at Surfing Magazine. There he developed a reputation as the most controversial voices in the space. Chas is also the co-owner of a surf website, BeachGrit.

Reports from Hell is a gonzo ride through the Middle East as only Chas Smith could provide. Follow Smith and his misfit band of merrymakers as they search for the true origins of Al Qaeda and endeavor to ride the unsurfed waves of Yemen all while exploring the slim opportunities for fun in the margins of our global war on terror and at what cost - even if it means eventual kidnapping by Hezbollah.
