Humanitarian aid workers Jessica Buchanan and Erik Landemalm will discuss their book, "Impossible Odds: The Kidnapping of Jessica Buchanan and Her Dramatic Rescue by SEAL Team Six," on Wednesday at the National Press Club.

Buchanan was held in captivity for 93 days starting in 2011 by pirates in southern Somalia but now lives in the D.C. area with husband Landemalm. She described the experience to Stephen Colbert last week as "the most extreme camping experience you can ever have."

General admission Tickets are $5 for the 6:30 p.m. event.
