National correspondent Graeme Wood of The Atlantic, who reported and wrote the much debated article, “What ISIS Really Wants,” will discuss the strategy, psychology and theology of the Islamic State during a talk at the 9/11 Memorial Museum on Jan. 18 at 7 p.m.

The discussion will surround the findings in Wood’s new book, “The Way of the Strangers: Encounters with the Islamic State,” which draws from wide-ranging interviews with the Islamic State’s followers. The Atlantic recently broke a story from Wood’s book on John Georgelas, a Texas-born military brat who is now a prominent leader in the Islamic State. Read the excerpt about Georgelas’ harrowing journey here.

Tickets are free but registration is required. Reserve tickets and view the full public programming calendar here. A book sale and signing with Wood will follow the program.

For those unable to attend the program, the 9/11 Memorial Museum will livestream the event here and on the its Facebook page.
