But for those who are interested in book news there are three events coming up in New York, Washington DC, and Denver between November 12 - November 19.
November 13: Washington DC, Yemen and The Fight Against a Resurgent al-Qaeda at the Brookings Institute: 10:00 - 11:30 am - this event will be done with Ibrahim Sharqieh and moderated by Daniel Byman.
November 19: Denver, Book Talk at the Tattered Cover - if you are in Denver for MESA or just live there come out to hear the amazing writer Mark Bowden talk about his new book on the killing of Osama bin Laden and stay to listen to me talk about Yemen.
