For Navy pilot Robert Wideman spent six years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, and for two years he entrusted author and DWPC member Cara Lopez Lee with helping him write his candid story of life in captivity. Unexpected Prisoner: Memoir of a Vietnam POW (Graham Publishing Group, 2016) is a story of lost freedom, power-struggles with enemies, conflicts with comrades, and the maddening but funny results of being stuck in small cells with unexpected roommates. Join us over brunch as Robert reveals secrets of the American POW experience, and as Cara shares the unusual method and madness of collaborating on another person’s most private story.
