More Information

In 2012, grantee Michael Scott Moore journeyed to Somalia to write about pirates, specifically ones from a gang whose members were being held in a German jail. Shortly after his arrival, he was kidnapped. 32 months and $1.6 million later, Moore was released. Now, six years after his kidnapping, Moore has written a book documenting his experience entitled The Desert and the Sea: 977 Days Captive on the Somali Pirate Coast. 

Seating for his book reading at Politics and Prose is free and on a first-come, first-serve basis with no reservation required.
