In the early days of September 1978, then-President Jimmy Carter held a secret summit in the woods of Maryland between two sworn enemies: Egyptian president Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin. Together, they brokered what many said was impossible: the peace agreement known as the Camp David Accords. In his newest book, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Lawrence Wright details what happened at Camp David during one of the world's most historic negotiations.

Guests:

Lawrence Wright, writer for The New Yorker and author of "Thirteen Days in September: Carter, Begin, and Sadat at Camp David," and of previous books including "Going Clear," about his investigation into Scientology
