FFI Book Club: Out of Istanbul by Bernard Ollivier
The fourth book we are reading together is “Out of Istanbul - A journey of discovery along the silk road” by acclaimed French journalist and writer Bernard Ollivier. Please go to your favorite book store or borrow this book from the library around the corner and start reading now :-)

Here are some reviews to increase your appetite:

“It has everything an FF member could want--vast multi-cultural insight, hospitality encounters of all types, communication without a mutual language, and everything is backed up with an excellent understanding of the historical background and the political situation in effect at that time. All of this is written in a very entertaining, readable style.” - FFI member Carol from Denver

“Bernard Ollivier is a man eager to learn about the world around him, a writer who opens his readers’ eyes. As a journalist, he knows how to extract life’s real secrets from people’s memories. Truth is, in heading out onto the Silk Road, he wasn’t seeking history, but wisdom. And he finds it in the exceptional openness of nomads. This is the gift he offers to us.”—Dominique Gerbaud, president, Reporters Without Borders
