Launch of Michael Jansen’s new book "Windows on Interesting Times"
This book covers events witnessed by the author and introduces people she met over the past 50 years in this region. It is not a history, a memoir, or an autobiography. The book is exactly what it says it is: windows. Windows meant to illuminate the times. Windows opened by an eye witness and empathetic listener.
