Summary: A Tragedy of America's Sixties! A Young Idealist's Wrenching Journey! In a small Midwestern city, young James Brandes seems destined for success. His family cares for him, while teachers nurture his inquisitive mind. With friends he has traditionally good times. Not for long though, as The Vietnam War begins to encroach on church, home, and school. James' idealism wavers at the state university, where President Johnson's policies activate protests and fray campus life. When LBJ withdraws from th moree upcoming election, hope revives but only briefly. Evens in Washington, home and the university weave together as Howard, James' hometown buddy, goes off to Vietnam while James becomes more involved in campus protest activity. When Nixon covertly bombs Hanoi and invades Cambodia, another hometown friend, Randy, lures James into an act forever transforming him and those he has known. Based loosely on actual happenings at the University of Wisconsin in the late 1960's and 1970, EVENTS OF THE DAY recreates one of America's most turbulent eras. A story of government gone wrong. Of personal courage. Of love snatched away by history. less
