Harvard Book Store, together with the Shorenstein Center and the Nieman Foundation, invites you to a tribute to Pulitzer Prize–winner and New York Times correspondent Anthony Shadid.
Anthony Shadid, a gifted foreign correspondent whose graceful dispatches for The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe and The Associated Press covered nearly two decades of Middle East conflict and turmoil, died on Thursday February 16 while on a reporting assignment in Syria.
In the days since his passing, much has been said about Anthony Shadid's courage, compassion, great talent as a journalist and writer, and deep insight into the culture and politics of the Middle East. This tribute was organized in an effort to gather those who knew and worked with Shadid for a reflection on his life and work.
The tribute will feature a panel of Shadid's colleagues and friends including Susan Chira, assistant managing editor for news for the New York Times and Anthony’s foreign editor from 2009 to 2011, Charlie Sennott, Vice President, Executive Editor and co-founder of GlobalPost who worked with Anthony at the Boston Globe, and Phil Bennett, the managing editor of Frontline who served as Anthony’s assistant managing editor for foreign news. Alex Jones, Director of the Shorenstein Center, will moderate.
