Journalist and author of
Notes on a Foreign Country: An American Abroad in a Post-American World
Deputy Director for Research, POMED
POMED is pleased to invite you to join us as journalist Suzy Hansen discusses her acclaimed new book, Notes on a Foreign Country: An American Abroad in a Post-American World. In her debut book, Hansen, a contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine, reflects on her time living in Turkey and traveling across the region to grapple with the challenging history of U.S. policy and power in the Middle East.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Hisham Matar describes the book as “a political and personal memoir that negotiates that vertiginous distance that exists between what America is and what it thinks of itself.” The Washington Post suggests that Hansen “urges Americans to recognize the perspectives that shape – and sometimes distort – how they understand their country’s role in the world.”
A question and answer session will follow the discussion. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
