Doug Stanton

Doug Stanton is a journalist, lecturer, screenwriter, and author of the New York Times bestsellers In Harm’s Way and Horse Soldiers. Horse Soldiers is the basis for a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced movie by the same name, starring Chris Hemsworth and Michael Shannon, to be released by Warner Bros. in 2018. In Harm’s Way, the definitive account of the sinking, rescue, and valor of the USS Indianapolis crew, spent more than six months on the New York Times bestseller list and became required reading on the U.S. Navy's reading list for officers. The unabridged audiobook edition of  In Harm’s Way is the winner of the 2017 Audie Award in the History category. Horse Soldiers was featured on the front page of the Sunday New York Times Book Review.

Tom Haxby took this thoughtful photo of Doug from the stage tonight. I just want to say thanks to all of you who came out and packed the Opera House to the uppermost balcony. It was a glorious evening and a heartfelt celebration of years of work. I'm really grateful to this little town where I moved 29 years ago. Never thought I could love a place so much. Doug W.
