February 24, 2010 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Author Event: ‘Law of the Jungle’

John OtisLaw of the Jungle is the true account of how a Saving Private Ryan-style mission degenerated into a frenzied, every-man-for-himself gold rush and the story of one of the most amazing hostage-rescue operations in history. John Otis will discuss his book and the current situation on the ground in Colombia.

Born in Minnesota, John Otis has worked as a journalist in Latin America for more than two decades, and also covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. His 2001 investigation of Colombia’s FARC guerrillas for the Houston Chronicle was honored by the Overseas Press Club as the best reporting out of Latin America. He now reports from Colombia for Time, and PRI’s The World radio program.
