cordially invites you to:

Afghanistan – A Distant War

In his new book, Afghanistan – A Distant War, veteran photojournalist Robert Nickelsberg offers a vivid close-up of the past quarter-century of Afghan history. As a photographer for TIME Magazine and The New York Times, Nickelsberg first observed Afghanistan emerge from an eight-year war against the Soviet Union and then descend into a brutal civil war followed by a Taliban takeover. Since 2001, he’s continued going back to chronicle what he calls “America’s War”. He has documented things many Afghans themselves never experienced firsthand, and earned an unusually deep understanding of this complex country. The Overseas Press Club of America recently recognized Robert with the Olivier Rebbot Award for outstanding photographic reporting from abroad that helps bring a deeper understanding to a critical geopolitic topic.

Reception with wine and light fare: 6:30-7:00 pm      Lecture:  7:00-8:30 pm
