Writer Philip Gourevitch is going to speaking at the Coffman Memorial Union Theater this evening (7:30 p.m.)!
There is nothing small about Gourevitch's writing. His book, We Wish to Inform You that Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families, focuses on the Rwandan genocide of 1994, and in 2008, he published The Ballad of Abu Ghraib, a book about America's war on terror and the scandal that took place at Abu Ghraib prison. Gourevitch's talk is free & open to the public. It is sponsored by the Esther Freier Endowed Lectures in Literature and the one-day conference "My Letter to the World: Narrating Human Rights."
