New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof will speak to the University Forum at The University of Southern Mississippi on April 10 at 6:30 p.m. in Bennett Auditorium in Hattiesburg, MS. (University Forum can also be viewed on the Gulf Park Campus in Long Beach, MS., via IVN in Hardy Hall 316.)
Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize seven times and twice the winner, Nicholas Kristof has lived on four continents and traveled to more than 150 countries, often risking his life to report on human rights abuses and social injustices. Along with his spouse, former Times correspondent Sheryl WuDunn, he has authored four books, including the number one bestseller, Half the Sky: From Oppression to Opportunity for Women Worldwide. At Southern Miss, Kristof will discuss the hundred thousand young women who are trafficked into the sex trade each year in the United States and share insights about a global crisis that hits closer to home than most want to believe.
The talk is free and open to the public and will be followed by a book signing. For more information, visit www.usm.edu/hc, like our University Forum Facebook page, follow us on Twitter at @USMForum, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
