Diplomat returns to publicise memoirs

FORMER US diplomat to the United Nations Sichan Siv, the highest-ranking Cambodian-American ever to serve in the US government, is visiting Phnom Penh to publicise his recently launched memoirs, Golden Bones.  

The book documents his escape from the Khmer Rouge in 1976, how he ended up as a taxi driver in New York City and, 13 years later, his appointment by President George HW Bush as an adviser to the White House.

Sichan Siv will speak at Pannasastra University (Norodom Blvd campus) at 6pm Thursday, will visit the National Library at 4pm Friday and will attend a book signing at Monument Books at 6pm on Saturday.
