“Congo Stories” signing with John Prendergast, Fidel Bafilemba, Ryan Gosling, and Chouchou Namegabe
December 14 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
From the author of the New York Times bestselling and award-winning Not on Our Watch, John Prendergast co-writes a compelling book with Fidel Bafilemba–with stunning photographs by Ryan Gosling–revealing the way in which the people and resources of the Democratic Republic of Congo have been used throughout the last five centuries to build, develop, advance, and safeguard the United States and Europe. Congo Stories: Battling Five Centuries of Exploitation and Greed highlights the devastating price Congo has paid for that support. However, the way the world deals with Congo is finally changing, and the book tells the remarkable stories of those in Congo and the United States leading that transformation.
Join John, Fidel, Ryan, and contributor Chouchou Namegabe for a signing of their important new work at Strand Bookstore on Friday, December 14th. Learn more about the event here.
