The former director of national intelligence James Clapper will appear on “Salon Talks” this week to discuss his new book “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths from a Life in Intelligence,” which details his take on events like the like raid on Osama bin Laden, the Benghazi attack, the Edward Snowden leaks and Russia’s influence during the 2016 campaign.

Plus, we’ll take an intimate, firsthand look at the Syrian civil war with artist and writer Molly Crabapple, whose new book collaboration with Marwan Hisham “Brothers of the Gun,” follows a young man coming of age in Syria through story and illustration. Crabapple will describe how she blends her incredible, award-winning art and storytelling style with this fast-moving political story.

Five-time Tony Award-winning playwright and director George C. Wolfe will join “Salon Talks” to share how he realized his vision for the American classic “The Iceman Cometh,” now on Broadway until July 1 starring Academy Award winner Denzel Washington. The show is nominated for eight Tony Awards.

And don’t miss H. Jon Benjamin, the lead voice behind “Archer” and “Bob's Burgers” and of “Wet Hot American Summer.” Benjamin will help us laugh through life’s toughest moments as he describes stories of failure from his new memoir “Failure Is An Option.”
