Former Secretary Of State Coming To Bethesda Row


Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is coming to the Barnes & Noble on Bethesda Row (4801 Bethesda Ave.) in March to promote her book about her early years in Europe during World War II. Albright, the first woman to hold the country's top diplomatic position, will appear at 7 p.m. on March 1 to talk about her book "Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948." Albright was born in Czechoslovakia in 1937 before her family left the country for England during the war. She eventually came to the United States where she climbed the diplomatic ranks. Albright served as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations from 1993 to 1997. In 1997, she was confirmed as the 64th U.S. Secretary of State. The book, which was published last year, relies on Albright's childhood memories, interviews, parents' written reflections and official documents to look back on the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia, Battle of Britain, Holocaust and other events that shaped World War II.
