The Life of War Correspondent Marie Colvin

Sunday 11th November

16.30 – 17.30 

Lindsey Hilsum 

‘It has always seemed to me that what I write is about humanity in extremis, pushed to the unendurable, and that it is important to tell people what really happens in wars.’  Marie Colvin, 2001

Marie Colvin always endeavoured to bear witness to the horrifying truths of war and to shine a light on the suffering of ordinary people. The most daring war reporter of her generation, she was tragically killed in Syria in 2012. Join us for this truly special event to hear about the life and work of this extraordinary woman from her friend and fellow foreign correspondent Lindsey Hilsum.

‘Rarely has a friend and colleague written such a brave and uncompromising testament to such a rare, brave and uncompromising woman. Would that a few more of us should be so blessed in our courage and our friends.’ Shami Chakrabarti
