Thieves of Baghdad - Book Signing & Talk

The College of Southern Maryland and the Southern Maryland Womens League are co-hosting a book talk and signing for Col. Matthew Bogdanos author of Thieves of Baghdad. The book is the Col.'s account of his team's investigation into the 2003 looting of the Iraq Museum in Baghdad and the subsequent recovery of over 3,000 of the world's oldest and most precious artifacts.

7:00 PM
CSM, LaPlata
Center for Business & Industry, BI113
Col. Bogdanos has generously offered to waive his speaking fee which is why we are able to offer this talk FREE of admission. The copies of the book will be available for purchase with all proceeds going directly to the Iraq Museum; Col. Bogdanos does not receive any royalties.

This is a wonderful opportunity for high school students taking AP History and Art History courses.
