UNA of New York invites you to join us for our Annual Meeting
followed by a BookTalk discussion on "Hammarskjold: A Life"
with Roger Lipsey, Historian and Scholar
Opening remarks by Ambassador Signe Burgstaller, Deputy Permanent Representative of Sweden to the UN
After 40 years, "Hammarskjold: A Life" arrives as the definitive new biography of one of the 20th century's most enlightened leaders.
In this thoroughly researched work Roger Lipsey details the political challenges and personal crises faced by Dag Hammarskjöld, second Secretary-General of the United Nations (1953-1961), and confirms without question the once-famed diplomat's eminent place in mid-20th century history.
BookTalkUNA is held in conjunction with the Institute of International Education.
