Dartmouth Silicon Valley and DGALA, in concert with Arts & Ideas at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco, invite alumni and their guests to a special VIP evening with journalist Masha Gessen, in conversation with Peter Finn, National Security Editor, Washington Post.
Masha Gessen is a fearless Russian-American journalist noted for her opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, an LBGT activist who says that for many years she was "probably the only publicly out gay person" in Russia, and the author of The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin and Words Will Break Cement: The Passion of Pussy Riot. Her latest book, about the Tsarnaevs, the Chechen brothers suspected of perpetrating the Boston Marathon bombings, explores the struggle between assimilation and alienation that fueled their apparent metamorphosis into a new breed of homegrown terrorist.
In addition to Ms Gessen's discussion, alumni and guests will meet in the "Green Room" for a private, Dartmouth VIP reception before the show.
