Joanne King Herring

The Junior Fellows took advantage of another opportunity to spend time at the Brazos Bookstore with Joanne King Herring, whose new book, “Diamonds and Diplomacy,” has just been published.

Ms. Herring covered her meetings with Frank Sinatra, Margaret Thatcher, Laura Bush, and Prince Phillip, whom she greeted by saying, “You are my fantasy…”  Of course, she also spent time discussing Afghanistan and her new project to help develop a stable regime.

Most enjoyably, she spent some time with the students and signed their books.

Although we just started reading the book, it is an enjoyable start, and if it is as nice as her book talk, it will be a fine read.
