Fascinated by author Michelle A. Carter’s new memoir From Under the Russian Snow? Join us for our first virtual book club! We’ll be chatting with Ms. Carter about her memoir and the writing process. Come enjoy an evening of enlightening discussion.

From Under the Russian Snow is a searing personal memoir blended with gutsy reporting and canny observation of contemporary life in the emerging democracy of pre-Putin Russia. It would be just a coming-of-(middle) age story, sprawled across the eleven time zones of the planet’s largest country — if life hadn’t intervened.”

We have limited copies of the book available at the Circulation Desk, so please call or stop by to sign up.

Ms. Carter retired in 2012 after 15 years as an instructor of journalism and communications and advisor to the award-winning student newspaper, The Argonaut, at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont. During 1995, she served as the United States Information Agency journalist-in-residence at the Russian-American Press and Information Center in Moscow, Russia.
