Join us tomorrow (Wednesday, March 17, 2010) at Lolita Bar as we listen to Mac McClelland of Mother Jones read from her book For Us Surrender Is Out of the Question set in the tormented nation of Burma where the world’s longest running civil war rages on.
McClelland weaves a narrative that is part investigative journalism, part popular history, and part memoir of a midwestern twenty-something woman living with refugee activists on the Burma-Thailand border. Driven by the community McClelland is illegally aiding—a small group of brave young men and women—For Us Surrender Is Out of the Question is an urgent and fascinating look at a weary conflict, told by a bright, new voice.
Read an excerpt of the book at Mother Jones.
Can’t wait to see you there!
