Picturing Afghanistan: An Afternoon With Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photojournalist Lynsey Addario

We are delighted to partner with multiple Illinois libraries, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Bradley University, and the Peoria Area World Affairs Council, as they present a virtual program with Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Lynsey Addario. She'll be discussing her experience covering Afghanistan for 20 years - - what life was like, especially for women, during the Taliban's rule, how life changed for women in the 20 years she's been covering the country, and how Afghans are reacting now. She will also share powerful images that she captured. Ms. Addario will be in conversation with award-winning interviewer Steve Edwards, a managing director at Koya Partners, formerly of WBEZ and the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics.
