Join journalism professor Sandy Tolan, author of The Lemon Tree: An Arab, A Jew, and the Heart of The Middle East, for a discussion and book signing with journalist Alan Weisman
, author of The World Without Us
. From Professor Tolan: "In an astonishing, sustained piece of reporting, Weisman travels across the world – from the Korean Demilitarized Zone to the abandoned lands around Chernoblyl; from ancient primeval European forest, to ruins in Turkey and Cyprus, to coral reefs in Micronesia, to the landscape of Mayan Guatemala – in a book the writer Bill McKibben calls 'one of the grandest thought experiments of our time.' ” Refreshments will be served. This event is co-sponsored by the Knight Chair in Media and Religion and the USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture.Return to Calendar »
