Please join us on Thursday, November 9 for an insightful and timely discussion on Iraq with Arab-American journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner Anthony Shadid.
Anthony Shadid, Washington Post's Middle East Correspondent, went to Iraq to cover the war from the perspective of those affected most, the Iraqi people. He offers an unfiltered vision of events, absent of the inherent bias found in many embedded reports and briefings by politicians. He will share with us his first-hand experiences and perspective on the impact of the war and occupation on the people of Iraq.
He is the sole journalist to receive a Pulitzer Prize for extraordinary coverage in Iraq.
Following the discussion, the new edition of his book, "Night Draws Near: Iraq's People in the Shadow of America's War" will be available for sale and signing.
