A little Friday afternoon self-promotion sounds about right: next Wednesday March 4, the Public Diplomacy Council is hosting “An Evening with Four Authors” from 6:30 to 8:00 at the DACOR Bacon House, which sounds delicious but is apparently just the Diplomatic and Consular Officers, Retired house, bequeathed to them by one Virginia Murray Bacon. Anyway, it’s at 1801 F Street, NW in DC.
The other two authors are Bill Kiehl and Tom Tuch, both very well known and respected people in the fields of public diplomacy and foreign affairs. The discussion will center on our three new books (Bill: Global Intentions Local Results: How Colleges Can Create International Communities; Tom: Arias, Cabalettas, and Foreign Affairs: A Public Diplomat’s Quasi-Musical Memoir), though I’m sure the conversation can and will take any number of interesting turns. RSVP to PDC@PublicDiplomacyCouncil.org if you can come. We’d love to see you there.
[Random note---I stumbled across a shout-out to this event at Mountain Runner, a public diplomacy blog by Matt Armstrong. Looks like an interesting resource that I'll check out more later.]
