Xavier Graduate and Navy SEAL Kevin Lacz to Speak at Russell Library

On Thursday, January 19, at 6:30pm, Russell Library will host author Keven Lacz, who will read from his new book, The Last Punisher.

Kevin Lacz's book is a New York Times bestselling on-the-ground memoir from a Navy SEAL who was part of SEAL Team 3 (known as The Punishers) with American Sniper Chris Kyle.

After graduating from Xavier High School, Kevin Lacz joined the SEALs and served alongside Chris Kyle with SEAL Team 3 during the Battle of Ramadi (which is the focus of the book). He also went on to serve as the technical advisor to Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood for the Oscar-nominated American Sniper film and ended up playing himself onscreen in the movie.
