Roadmap to Hell Book Presentation by Barbie Nadeau, Thursday, March 22 at 6:00pm

Join us for a special book presentation by journalist and author Barbie Nadeau on

March 22nd at 6:00 pm

in the St Stephen's School Cultural Center.

Barbie Nadeau will talk about her journey in writing her latest book

ROADMAP TO HELL: SEX, DRUGS AND GUNS ON THE MAFIA COAST

 

OneWorld Publications who published the book describes its contents as follows:

"From sex slaves to drug mules, The Daily Beast's Rome Bureau Chief uncovers a terrifying and intricate web of criminal activity right on Europe's doorstep.

Caught between Camorra gunrunners selling to ISIS and Nigerian drug gangs along Italy's picturesque coast, each year thousands of refugees and migrants are lured into their criminal underworld, forced to become sex slaves, drug mules or weapon smugglers. In this powerful exposé, investigative journalist Barbie Latza Nadeau follows the weapons trail, meets the Nigerian hair braiders trafficked and trapped by black magic, the brave nuns who try to save them and the Italian police who turn a blind eye as the most urgent issues facing Europe play out in broad daylight."
