The iconic Larchmont bookstore founded by Joe Chevalier in 1940 continues to stimulate visitors not only with its inventory, but also with book-related events.

Typical of the quality of the dozens of events presented most months was the dialogue late last month between C.J. Chivers, a Pulitzer Prize-winning “New York Times” war correspondent, and retired lawyer, now painter and author, Jack Walker.

Chivers’ latest book is “The Fighters,” which describes the physical and emotional experience of war as lived by six of our U.S. fighters serving in our country’s longest wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Interviewer Walker was a Marine Corps officer in Vietnam. His 2016 memoir is “Eye Corps – Coming of Age at the DMZ.”

“The Fighters” won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in Feature Writing. In 2009, author Chivers was part of a team that won the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting for coverage from Afghanistan and Pakistan.
