Remembering Anthony Shadid

The world lost an exceptional journalist with the Feb. 16 death of New York Times and Washington Post reporter Anthony Shadid–but on a more personal level, others lost a family member, a friend, a mentor. True to his talent, Shadid always had a story to tell–from his 2011 imprisonment by Libya’s pro-Ghaddafi forces to the ancestral Lebanese estate he rebuilt after his release. House of Stone, his book about that reconstruction–and about rebuilding so many other broken things–was to be the subject of the Pulitzer Prize winner’s anticipated lecture at Town Hall. But instead, we remember and honor Shadid’s life’s work with three short talks about him, from his brother Damon Shadid, Resat Kasaba (Director of the UW Jackson School of International Studies), and Egyptian journalist Marwa Maziad.
