Lubin's newly published book takes readers on a compelling journey through the major historical events leading up to and beyond US involvement in WWI to discover the vast and pervasive influence of the conflict on American visual culture. In this book launch, David M. Lubin will present a highly original examination of the era's fine arts and entertainment to show how they ranged from patriotic idealism to profound disillusionment.
