Book Tour Alert: Zach Vertin, A Rope from the Sky

To those based in the Chicago area: My client Zach Vertin, a former diplomat in the Obama administration, has his first book—A Rope from the Sky: The Making and Unmaking of the World’s Newest State, about South Sudan—coming out this month in the US (it's already out in the UK). Zach will be doing a conversation and signing at Seminary Co-op in Hyde Park on Jan. 27, at 3 p.m.; his “interlocutor,” as Seminary so charmingly puts it, is Stephen Franklin, a former correspondent for the Chicago Tribune.

If you or anyone you know is interested in Sudan, African/U.S. politics, and the art of diplomacy, please share this and save the date.

You can find more info on the event here. And if you’re in a city other than Chicago, Zach may be coming your way too—you can find his tour schedule here.
