Description

East City Bookshop welcomes writer and author George Packer with his newest book, Our Man: Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century

In Our Man, drawn from Holbrooke's diaries and papers, we are given a nonfiction narrative that is both intimate and epic in its revelatory portrait of this extraordinary and deeply flawed man and the elite spheres of society and government he inhabited.

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP is recommended but not required. Click here to learn more and reserve your copy of Our Man today.
