* Jeffrey Gettleman, The New York Times’ South Asia Bureau Chief, is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who has served as the NYT’s East Africa Bureau Chief for the past decade before arriving in India in August 2017. He will talk about his first book Love, Africa: A Memoir of Romance, War, and Survival.
Passionate, eye-opening, and sometimes horrifying, Gettleman’s debut details how he found both love and a calling while reporting from Uganda, Sudan, Congo, and Kenya. Recounting the dangers of documenting Somali pirates, war in Iraq and Western-backed rebels along with the twists of a long-distance courtship with his future wife, Love, Africa has been lauded by Booklist as “an absolute must-read.”
