Eliza Griswold | Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America

Tue, June 12, 2018 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

In the New York Times bestselling book The Tenth Parallel, immersive journalist Eliza Griswold spent seven years traversing the geographic and ideological fronts in Africa and Asia where Christianity and Islam collide. In I Am the Beggar of the World, she traveled to Afghanistan to anthologize poems written by diverse women who challenged the image of the voiceless figure under the burqa. Her awards include the Robert I. Friedman Award for investigative journalism. Amity and Prosperity tells the story of a Pennsylvania town devastated by fracking and the unlikely whistleblower who took the case to court.
