IRVIN OTT, PROFESSOR of national security policy at the National War College, will discuss "Cambodia: Is It a United Nations Success Story -- Or Not?" at 1: 30 p.m. Nov. 7 at the East Columbia library.
Ott has lived and traveled extensively in Asia.
Recently, he has been deputy staff director of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
He was associate professor at Mount Holyoke College and adjunct professor at the Johns Hopkins and American universities.
Ott was senior Japan analyst at the CIA, consultant on Japan to the National Academy of Sciences, chairman for Southeast Asia at the Foreign Service Institute and senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
Library program coordinator Pat Bates said, "History does not just go away. Learning from history can sometimes help people to understand today's world events. Cambodia is part of our more recent history."

Theresa Shaw, children's librarian at the East Columbia library, 6600 Cradlerock Way, invites boys and girls to come and see the nine quilted storybook panels on display in the children's wing of the library.
The Kaleidoscope Quilters group donated the panels, which depict characters from popular children's literature.
Each panel is 2-by-2 feet, so it will be easy for children to recognize and identify the characters.
They can enter the library's storybook contest from now through November.
Children's Book Week begins Nov. 18 and is a special time to visit the library.
Most important, there will be a prize for the child who can identify all of the characters featured in the panels.
