Author @ the Library: Caught in the Revolution: Petrograd, Russia, 1917 - A World on the Edge, with Helen Rappaport, historian and the New York Times bestselling author of "The Romanov Sisters."
This illustrated lecture spotlights the outbreak of the Russian Revolution through eye-witness accounts left by foreign nationals who saw the drama unfold. During 1917 Petrograd was turned into a 'red madhouse' as diplomats, military attaches, governesses, journalists, businessmen and nurses watched history being made in the war-torn capital.
