New York Times Correspondent Steven Lee Myers Is Speaking At Penn State Wednesday

New York Times correspondent Steven Lee Myers is coming to Penn State today to discuss Putin, Russia, and implications of the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

“Seventeen years after appearing unexpectedly on the political scene in Russia, Vladimir V. Putin remains an enigmatic leader who confounds his opponents at home and abroad even as he reasserts Russian power. How does Putin’s background shape his view of the country and the world? What are the roots of his popularity at home? How stable is the system he has created? And how will the world react to a resurgent Russia that is increasingly hostile to the West?,” the event’s Facebook page asks, providing a teaser for questions Myers will likely attempt to answer.

Myers, author of the new book “The New Tsar: The Rise and Reign of Vladimir Putin”, will speak at Penn State Law and the School of International Affairs at 5:30 p.m. A book signing will follow immediately after the talk. The event is free and open to the public, you just have to sign up here. You can also RSVP on Facebook if you want.
