Journalist and Scholar to Speak at St. Photios Seminary 

David Satter, former Moscow correspondent for the “Financial Times of London” and former special correspondent on Soviet affairs for “The Wall Street Journal” will deliver a lecture on contemporary (postSoviet) Russia in the auditorium at the St. Photios Orthodox Theological Seminary, in Etna, on Sunday evening, November 20, at 6:30 p.m. Space may be limited, so we ask that those interested in attending contact the seminary at (530) 467-3544 (between 12 noon and 1 p.m. or between 6 and 8 p.m.) and leave a name and the number of attendees in their party. There is no charge for the lecture. 
Professor Satter, a graduate of the University of Chicago and Oxford University, where he was a 
Rhodes Scholar, is currently a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC, and a fellow of the School of Advanced International Studies at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. He has also been a Guggenheim Fellow, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, and a visiting professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 
Satter is the author of a plethora of articles in the popular press about Russia and—of special interest to the St. Photios Seminary students and faculty—the persecution and collaboration of the Orthodox Church in the Soviet Union and under Boris Yeltsin and Vladimir Putin. He has authored four major books on Russia, all published by Yale University Press, the latest entitled The Less You Know, The Better You Sleep: Russia's Road to Terror and Dictatorship under Yeltsin and Putin.
