Come join us to discuss Notes on a Foreign Country: An American Abroad in a Post-American World, by Suzy Hansen. Hansen, who moved to Istanbul after 9/11, grapples with America's violent role in the world. In the period between 9/11 and the election of President Trump, Hansen lived in Turkey and traveled to Greece, Egypt, Afghanistan, Iran and the Mississippi Delta. She uses these places, their complex histories and fraught present, as lenses through which to look at her own nation. We hope you can join us for what will sure to be a fascinating discussion!
