San Diego “LOOT-ed” by Sharon Waxman

England, Spain, and Mexico were a few of the countries represented by the multi-cultural group that attended  the enlightening and dynamic lecture given by Sharon Waxman about her latest book,  “LOOT.”  This new publication, about the often less-than-forthright antiquities business, was presented at an event hosted by Alex and Suzette Valle at USD’s elegant Degheri Alumni Center.
