Nicholas Kristof Comes to DC!

KristofMonday, September 29, 2014

Sixth & I Historic Synagogue

Metro:  Gallery Place – Chinatown (Red/Yellow/Green Line)  
 
   

Nicholas Kristof is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and NY Times Columnist who focuses on human rights and social justice.  He and his wife wrote this new book which is a unique narrative about making a difference in the world and is a road-map to becoming a conscientious global citizen.  Equal in urgency and compassion to their previous book  Half the Sky , A Path Appears offers a deep examination of people who are making the world a better place, and the myriad ways we can support them, whether with a donation of five dollars or five million, an inkling to help or a useful skill to deploy.

 

The authors examine the art and science of giving, determining the current most successful local and global aid initiatives (on issues from education to inner-city violence to disease prevention), evaluating the efficiency and impact of specific approaches and charities, as well as fund-raising. They show us how particular people have made a difference, and offer practical advice on how best each of us can give and what we can personally derive from doing so.

 

The Book Club will get together briefly before the event and if people are interested, we can linger after the event at a restaurant or coffee shop nearby and discuss the event.  One great draw – no advance reading is required!  ;)
