Description:

Medill welcomes Stephen Rodrick,  Medill alumnus and contributing writer to the New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, GQ and The New Republic. Rodrick, MSJ91, is the author of the  just-published book, “Magical Stranger: A Son’s Journey Into His Father’s Life.”  On November 28, 1979, Commander Peter Rodrick died when his plane crashed in the Indian Ocean. He was just thirty-six and had been the commanding officer of his squadron for 127 days. Eight thousand miles away on Whidbey Island, near Seattle, he left behind a wife who never recovered, two daughters, and a thirteen-year-old son who would grow up to be a writer—one who was drawn to write about his father, his family, and the devastating consequences of military service.
