Author Events To Attend in January and February

Hi KP Readers,

Our wonderful authors are venturing off to local and international areas to showcase their most recent achievements. Here's a list of places and people to look out for in the coming weeks ahead:

Joseph Hanlon - Chatham House, London, January 31st at 17:00 to 18:00 GMT:  In 2000 Zimbabwe captured headlines around the world when 170,000 black farmers occupied 4,000 white farms. A new book, Zimbabwe Takes Back its Land claims that despite political violence and hyperinflation, the new farmers are doing relatively well, improving their lives and becoming increasingly productive, especially since the US dollar became the local currency. While not minimizing the depredations of the Mugabe government, and accepting that many of President Mugabe's supporters benefited from the ruler's largesse, the book counters the dominant media narratives of oppression and economic stagnation in Zimbabwe.

The speakers, the authors of the book, will argue that the outcome raises important questions for the upcoming elections, and also presents new issues for the international community to consider.

Jeff Unsicker - Bluestockings Bookstore, NY, February 2nd from 7 to 9pm: New KP author, Jeff Unsicker of Confronting Power, will be at Bluestockings Bookstore in NY on February 2nd for a book reading and signing. His event will run from 7-9pm. This event is open to the public and free of charge.
