Caleb S. Cage is the winner of numerous awards, including the Nevada Silver Pen.  He spoke about his most recent book:  War Narratives Shaping Beliefs, Burning Truths in the Middle East. 
As a graduate of the United States Military Academy, West Point, a veteran of the war in Iraq (2 tours), and having a Master's Degree in Security Services from the Naval Postgraduate School, he is uniquely qualified to talk about how information and narratives from various media sources shape our beliefs about the current conflict in Irag and other conflicts in our times.
Narratives are shaped by perspective, information left in and out of any story as well as our social and political world view.  Caleb answered several questions and was gracious and candid in his presentation.  His books are available at Sundance and on Amazon.
