Meet Local Author Steven Fisher!

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021 at 7:00pm via Zoom

Experience the Russian Revolution with a Port Chester High School Class of 1977 graduate.

Fisher will discuss his new book, "Into Russia’s Cauldron," and the fascinating journey he traveled in writing it. In this true story, in 1916, the National City Bank of New York (now Citibank) sent Greenwich’s Leighton Rogers to Russia. His journal provides a riveting account of the revolution, his transformation under fire, and foreboding about today’s Russia.
