Sometimes timing is everything.  This coming Monday, fresh off the Sochi Olympics and surrounded by all the news of Russia’s incursion into Crimea, Author and journalist Masha Gessen will be speaking about her new book, Words Will Break Cement: The Passion of Pussy Riot.  Gessen’s other recent book, the national best seller, The Man without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin, won critical acclaim on her insights into the man whose actions have changed the world.   Join in on what should be a fascinating discussion in the College’s 900 Room in the Knoblock Campus Center this Monday at 7:50pm.
