World War II wasn’t just a Good War to fight; it was a good war to cover. Every place had a story: the horror of Stalingrad, the indomitable spirit of London, the apocalyptic battles of Okinawa and Guadalcanal. No wonder war correspondents wrote some of the best nonfiction of this (or any) century. At “Reporting World War II: The Good War and the Patriotic Press,” four World War II journalists, as well as Andy Rooney, will discuss how they covered the war with a paper, a pencil, and no CNN. At 7:30 p.m. at American University’s Kay Spiritual Life Center Chapel, 4400 Massachusetts Ave. NW. FREE. (202) 885-2074. (David Plotz)
