Visiting author and friend Anthony Saidy will be reading from his recently published novel, "1983", on Thursday, November 14 at 6 pm at Source Booksellers in Detroit. "1983" is Anthony Saidy's projection of an alternative reality for the Soviet Union. Out of the ferments of the final decades of the Soviet Union, what if change had issued from dissident intellectuals and the working class? Could the two groups, who appeared alienated from each other, somehow mesh and bring about a new society? And what does this say for our own time and place? Anthony Saidy is a long-time human rights activist, a retired physician from Los Angeles and an "International Chess Master". During four journeys to the Soviet Union for chess championships, he travelled to five republics and met people from all walks of life. Saidy is the author of three books on chess, including the classic, The March of Chess Ideas.
