Join Lannan for this special investigation of the Colombian conflict. The event celebrates the release of two books, one of photographs and the other of personal histories, that depict life in Colombia. Panelists will include photojournalist Stephen Ferry, whose work comprises Violentology: A Manual of the Colombian Conflict, as well as Sibylla Brodzinsky and Max Schoening, editors of the forthcoming Throwing Stones at the Moon: Narratives from Colombians Displaced by Violence.
Photographer Harry Mattison will act as moderator for the discussion.
Following the panel, please join us for a book-signing and light refreshments.
This event is free and open to the public.
