Brett Dakin, author of Another Quiet American and board chair of Legacies of War, is currently in Vientiane attending the meetings surrounding the Convention on Cluster Munitions. Monument Books is very glad to host a presentation of his work on Saturday, the 13th of November, from 6 to 8PM.

Mr. Dakin will be talking about his experience living in Vientiane from 1998 to 2000, how the city has changed since then, and how he has reconnected with Laos through his work with Legacies of War, a US-based NGO supporting UXO clearance in Laos.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session and a book signing. Attendance is free, but limited to 80 persons.

Monument Books is located at 124 Rue Nokeokumman Ban Mixay, Vientiane.
