The visit is sponsored by the Open World Leadership Center, an international exchange program housed in the Library of Congress. The World Affairs Council of New Hampshire is the local partner for their stay here.
Horgan told those attending the reception, including host families and board members of WACNH, that their guests are here to learn "how the media can help keep government open and how nonprofits can help advocate on the state level."
Aleksey Maslov writes and takes photos, and teaches photography at a univer. sity. He's interested in learning more about how mass media operates in the United States, he told the group.
