Hello all avid readers. We have a great books for January – BUSTED – A Tale of Corruption and Betrayal in the City of Brotherly Love, by Pulitzer Prize winners Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker. Lisa Scottline wrote of the book, “Busted reads like a turbocharged thriller, and the more compelling because it’s true.”
We had hoped to get this in December as December 9th is International Anti-Corruption Day, but the mail was a bit late. Nevertheless we still think this book is a worthwhile read and former Latvian MP Rasma Kārkliņa and Illinois University political science professor will join the discussion!
What’s in it for you?
- A free hard cover book, yours to keep, and an opportunity to discuss its contents with other avid readers! Plus a chance to discuss corruption with a leading expert who has in depth knowledge of this scourge in both Latvia and the U.S.
