    This partnership between Chandrasekaran and Starbucks is really innovative. Starbucks has started several new initiatives including this and a program to help provide tuition assistance to the Company’s full time employees.
    In a post on his Facebook page, Chandrasekaran writes that the new company will produce “nonfiction, social-impact content, some of it in partnership with the Starbucks Coffee Co.” The company will start with producing television and film projects around Chandrasekaran’s 2014 book “For Love of Country: What Our Veterans Can Teach Us About Citizenship, Heroism and Sacrifice.”

    Chandrasekaran has had several jobs at The Post, including national editor, assistant managing editor and Baghdad bureau chief, according to his website. He is also the author of “Imperial Life in the Emerald City,” a book about the post-invasion reconstruction of Iraq, which won the Overseas Press Club book award and was a finalist for the National Book Award.

    He also covered the David Petraeus affair for The Washington Post, chronicling the scandal’s affect on other military officials, the lifestyle perks afforded a top general and the embattled official’s consultation of civilian military analysts.
    This should be a very interesting evening
