You can read the papers, scour the Internet, and watch all the TV channels. But…there is no way for you to know what isn’t being reported.
For more than 40 years, Fort Wayne native Mark Lavie reported from Israel, the Palestinian areas, Egypt and surrounding countries for NPR, NBC, CBC and The Associated Press. Though he was based mostly in Israel, he spent two crucial years in Cairo covering Arab Spring. After leaving the profession this year, embittered and frustrated, he published a book, Broken Spring, to explain what the West doesn’t understand, what the media don’t report, and why.
He’ll tell all in his lecture, illustrated by his photographs taken on assignment. You’ll never see the Mideast in the same way again.
