Maryville Talks Books: George Packer - Our Man

Thursday, May 16, 7pm
St. Louis Public Library - Schlafly Branch, 225 N. Euclid

George Packer, Our ManLeft Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books welcome award-winning author of The Unwinding George Packer, who will sign and discuss his new book, Our Man: Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century!

Richard Holbrooke was brilliant, utterly self-absorbed, and possessed of almost inhuman energy and appetites. Admired and detested, he was the force behind the Dayton Accords that ended the Balkan wars, America’s greatest diplomatic achievement in the post-Cold War era. But his sharp elbows and tireless self-promotion ensured that he never rose to the highest levels in government that he so desperately coveted. 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, but proof of purchase of Our Man from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
