Four-star Admiral William H. McRaven has been involved in some of the most famous missions in recent years, including the capture of Saddam Hussein and the raid to kill Osama bin Laden.
He is also the author of the No. 1 New York Times bestselling book "Make Your Bed: Little Things That Will Change Your Life ... And Maybe the World" as well as a new book titled "Sea Stories: My Life in Special Operations." McRaven’s new book is a collection of his memories from his early life and his time in special operations with the military.
He will present his new book at an evening reception sponsored by the New Braunfels Public Library Foundation on Jan. 16 from 6-9 p.m. at the McKenna Events Center, 801 W. San Antonio St., New Braunfels.
All proceeds from the event will be used to purchase an outreach van for the New Braunfels Public Library, which will provide mobile programs and enable home-bound patrons to receive library materials.
General admission tickets are $45 per person, and signed copies of "Sea Stories" will be available for purchase.
A VIP reception will be held before the event with photo opportunities and a chance to meet McRaven. Tickets to this reception are $125 per person, and each attendee will receive a copy of his book. Tickets for both events can be purchased at www.eveningwithwilliammcraven.eventbrite.com
