John Otis will be in town THURSDAY at 12:30, speaking at UT School of Communications. And just who is John Otis? He's worked as a reporter in Latin American for twenty years and is the author of the newly published Law of the Jungle: The Hunt for Colombian Guerrillas, American Hostages, and Buried Treasure. He's also tight with some of my very favorite friends in the whole world, so I have it on excellent authority that the book and the talk are/will be most excellent.
You can read read an excerpt of the book-- which details the fate of three US military contractors held hostage for five years by the Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC)-- in Time Magazine.

Please help spread the word about this talk.
