Join us as we welcome author Michelle A. Carter as she presents on her new memoir From Under the Russian Snow.

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.”

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.
