Shadid told the stories of ordinary Iraqis in his acclaimed Night draws near. In this book, he used his own Lebanese family history, and especially his account of reconstructing his great-grandfather’s house, to recapture the vibrant past of a region now seemingly known only for conflict.
Anthony Shadid, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner nominated again this year for his coverage of the human toll of conflict in the Middle East, was scheduled to speak at P&P, but he died at age 43 of an apparent asthma attack while reporting for The New York Times in Syria on February 16. Brad and Anthony were colleagues at The Washington Post some years ago. As with all who crossed paths with Anthony, Brad held him in the highest regard for his insightful, courageous, and vivid reporting. Anthony had a remarkable capacity to find and focus on compelling characters wherever he went. By telling their individual stories with uncommon empathy and nuance, he also expertly and gracefully addressed the larger issues at stake. We will use this evening - when Anthony would have been speaking at P&P - as a public tribute to celebrate, with readings from his book, his work as a journalist and his friendship. Featured speakers will be Steve Coll, David Hoffman, and Rajiv Chandrasekaran. We hope you will join us.
