“Congo In Crisis” At Suffern Library

Heart of Diamonds

Heart of Diamonds

The crisis in the Congo is the focus of the talk I’ll be giving at the Suffern Free Library Monday, March 16. I’ll also read from Heart of Diamonds and show photos from my travels to Africa.

A diamond smuggling scheme drives the plot in my novel, and it represents in many ways the fight for control of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s gold, timber, uranium, copper, coltan, and other natural resources. That struggle has caused nearly six million deaths since 1998, making it the deadliest conflict since World War II.

The talk is at 7 p.m. The library is at 210 Lafayette Ave.
