Khrushchev son is NOT a chip off the old Soviet bloc

Sergei Khrushchev, son of former Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev, will speak to audiences tonight, Oct. 5, on the theme, “U.S. and Russia, Then and Now. . .”‘ at 7:30 p.m. at the Port Angeles High School auditorium.

An exclusive interview — featuring his views on the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Thursday’s crash of a Russian airliner in the Black Sea and other issues — appears in the Friday/Saturday editions of the Peninsula Daily News, on sale throughout Clallam and Jefferson counties.

The younger Khrushchev, 65, became an American citizen in 1999. He is a professor at Brown University and a senior fellow at the Center for Foreign Policy Development of the Thomas J. Watson Institute for International Studies.

His current research is focused on contemporary change in the former Soviet Union. He is the author of several scholarly books.

Peninsula College invited Khrushchev for the fourth annual “American Conversations.”

Tickets are $10 adults, $5 students and are available in Port Angeles at Odyssey Bookshop, Port Book and News, The Bookaneer (Peninsula College Bookstore) and the Peninsula Daily News office, 305 W. First St., Port Angeles, and at the high school auditorium door, 304 E. Park Ave.; in Sequim at Pacific Mist Books ; in Port Townsend at Quimper Sound; in Forks ThriftyMart and Tinker’s Tales & Antiques.
