Schlow Library to host 'An Evening with Lynsey Addario' event

September 07, 2017

Schlow Library hosts An Evening with Lynsey Addario at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17, in the Downsbrough Community Room, State College, Pennsylvania.

Addario is the author of "It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War," which is this year’s Penn State Reads selection. The book chronicles her life documenting the major theaters of war in the 21st century.

Over the past 15 years, Addario has covered events in Afghanistan, Iraq, Darfur, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, South Sudan, Somalia and Congo.

In 2015, American Photo Magazine named Addario as one of the five most influential photographers over the past 25 years. She regularly works for The New York Times, National Geographic and Time Magazine. She was part of the New York Times team that won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting for her photographs in “Talibanistan,” which was published in New York Times Magazine.

An Evening with Lynsey Addario is free and no registration is required. A book signing will follow the event.
