Love, Africa: Insights from Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist 

A seasoned war correspondent, Jeffrey Gettleman has covered every major conflict over the past 20 years, from Afghanistan to Iraq to the Congo. For the past decade, he has served as the East Africa bureau chief for the New York Times, fulfilling a longtime dream.

Based in Kenya, Gettleman recently completed his memoir “Love, Africa,” which bears witness to his time in one of the most turbulent regions of the world and tells a revealing story about finding a calling – and love.

Join us for a special program with Gettleman as he shares his “Love, Africa” story and discusses the impact of U.S. policies in East Africa. The evening will include a short reading from his memoir, moderated discussion, and in-depth Q&A with the audience.
