Click here to RSVP

Join Lara Marlowe, Paris-based foreign correspondent for The Irish Times newspaper, for a conversation on the war in Ukraine and her memoir Love in a Time of War, My Years with Robert Fisk. Described by Noam Chomsky as “A gripping tale of savagery and courage, of history in the making, intertwined with rich personal reminiscences,” this account of her relationship with renowned British journalist Robert Fisk describes the intensity of love and the perils of journalism, set against geopolitical turbulence and violent war. Marlowe will be bringing her nearly 40 years of work in journalism to the library to discuss the writing of this book, the complicated experiences of war correspondents, and her perspective on the Ukraine war.
