I’ll be hosting this event tonight at the McNally Robinson Bookstore, on Prince St. just off Lafayette.
First Tuesdays Political Series: Jen Marlowe
Author of Darfur Diaries (Nation Books)
This monthly series hosted by author and activist Mark Crispin Miller features authors whose books tackle political and public issues from a stance outside the mainstream. In 2004, outraged by American media’s failure to adequately cover the tragedies of Darfur, Jen Marlowe and a team of documentary filmmakers went to Sudan to hear the stories firsthand. Darfur Diaries contains those firsthand accounts of refugees, fighters, teachers, students, parents, children and community leaders, as well as the experience of the documentary team. Join us at McNally Robinson for a discussion with Marlowe about the ongoing events in Darfur and how our perceptions of those events are shaped by media representations.
