6:00 Reception; 7:00 Dinner; 9:15 Adjournment Union League of Philadelphia 140 S Broad St, Philadelphia, PA Seats at the 2016 Annual Dinner are guaranteed to FPRI Partners. Individual tickets are available to purchase on a first-come, first-serve basis for $300 per seat.
Acclaimed author Kanan Makiya will present a keynote address on the occasion of the publication of his new novel The Rope. It is both a murder mystery and a poignant story of a militia man, his closest friends, and family – all working at cross-purposes after the invasion of Iraq. The book illuminates what went wrong in Iraq in a way that nonfiction is ill-equipped to do. He will also explore what went wrong in the Arab Spring and what the lessons are for all of us today.
Guests at the Dinner will receive a complimentary copy of the book.
