When: Tue., Nov. 10, 7 p.m. 2015
In 1985, Garry Kasparov became the world's youngest chess Grandmaster and a figure of national pride in Russia. By the time he retired in 2005, Kasparov was regarded as the greatest player of all time. But rather than enjoy a quiet retirement, Kasparov started working as an activist and vocal critic of the Russian government, particularly President Vladimir Putin. Kasparov's new book Winter Is Coming argues that the Putin regime is a growing international threat that is as dangerous as ISIS. Kasparov discusses and signs copies of Winter Is Coming tonight at 7 p.m. at St. Louis County Library Headquarters (1640 South Lindbergh Boulevard, Frontenac; 314-367-6731 or www.left-bank.com). Admission is free, and Left Bank Books will be selling the book on site.
Price: free admission
