Author Event - Postcards from Stanland: Journeys in Central Asia Book by David H. Mould Presented by Asian Services in Action, Inc.
Across the vast steppe and mountain ranges, to fabled Silk Road cities, the Soviet rust belt and the futuristic architecture of Astana, Kazakhstan’s capital, David Mould takes you to a remote, diverse and strategically vital region, the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. That jumble of countries whose names end in “stan”: Stanland. You'll meet teachers, students, politicians, entrepreneurs, journalists, cab drivers and market sellers to learn about their history, culture and struggle to survive in the post-Soviet era. David Mould is professor emeritus of media arts and studies at Ohio University. Born in the United Kingdom, he worked as a newspaper and TV journalist before moving to the United States in 1978. He currently works as an international communications consultant and freelance writer. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
