Best-selling author calls for elimination of Russian cultural stereotypes

WASHINGTON D.C. (February 5, 2014) —What do the New York Times, Hollywood movie moguls, TV networks and members of the Senate and the House have in common?

According to renowned businessman, best-selling author, and outspoken cultural activist, M.G. Crisci, “Their cultural understanding and personal depictions of today’s Russian Federation is at least 20 years behind the times, due to sheer ignorance, unintentional innuendo, and/or a blind pursuit of profit.”

Crisci will be making his case via an interactive, multi-media address on Friday evening at 7 PM at the Russian Cultural Centre near DuPont Circle, and will include current examples of how politicians, the press, television and the movies wittingly and unwittingly commit transgressions, as well as observations from his recent appearances at the U.S. Embassy and the American Democratic Center in Moscow.

In addition to his business accomplishments, Crisci is the author of seven critically-acclaimed books including two dealing with Russia, its culture and its people: the best-selling Call Sign, White Lily, and his latest book, Seven Days in Russia–The Adventures of One American in Today’s Federation (Orca Publishing Co) ), as well as worldwide editorials and blogs on his Russian adventures.
