Ristretto Reading Series, September 5 at 7pm: Michael Totten, "Where the West Ends"

Please join us for an evening with international correspondent and foreign policy analyst Michael J. Totten, reading from his new book, Where the West Ends: Stories from the Middle East, the Balkans, the Black Sea, and the Caucasus. A resident of Portland, Oregon, Totten’s fearlessness and curiosity take him places most people choose to avoid—Bosnia and Iraq, Libya and Ukraine, and Georgia during the Russian invasion. “Paris? Why would I want to go to Paris?” Totten once said. “I want to go to North Korea."
Totten will read from his latest book and sign copies. Coffee and treats available. Wine graciously provided by Anne Amie Vineyards.
7pm, Ristretto Roasters Williams, 3808 N. Williams Ave.
This event is free and open to everyone, as are all Ristretto Reading Series events. More info on our Facebook page.Michael J.
