How do you make something go viral in the days before social media? Halcyon Days by Steven Dietz is a shrewd satire exploring what it to​ok​ to get America behind the 1983 invasion of the western hemisphere's smallest country​, Grenada. This eye opening exploration of the D.C. "spin machine" is a brutally witty and thought provoking behind the scenes look at America's first "public relations" war.
