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.”
His first book, The Road to Fatima Gate, won the Washington Institute Silver Book Prize in 2011. He won the Weblog Award for Best Middle East or Africa Blog in 2007 and 2008, and was named Blogger of the Year in 2006 by The Week magazine for his dispatches from the Middle East.
Totten lives with his wife in Portland, Oregon and is a former resident of Beirut.
