The National Humanities Center is pleased to present an evening with award-winning journalist and international correspondent Jane Ferguson on Thursday, September 21 at 7:00 pm.

Jane Ferguson is a Polk, Emmy, Peabody, OPCA, and DuPont award-winning foreign correspondent for PBS NewsHour, contributor to The New Yorker, and McGraw Professor of Journalism at Princeton University. Now based in New York City, she has over thirteen years of experience living and reporting in the Middle East and reporting from the Arab world, Africa, and South Asia. Her work focuses on US foreign policy and defense, conflict, diplomacy, and human rights. With an emphasis on in-depth, magazine-length broadcasting, Jane’s reporting is characterized by exclusive ground-breaking access, thoughtful storytelling, and character-driven reporting. Her memoir, No Ordinary Assignment, is currently available from HarperCollins.

The evening, presented in conjunction with the Hussman School of Journalism and Media and UNC Global Affairs, will feature a talk by Jane Ferguson reflecting on her career and sharing insights from her memoir. A book signing will be offered afterward. This event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. We are delighted to provide a free signed copy of No Ordinary Assignment to the first 100 people who register and attend this event. Books may be picked up before the event in the atrium outside the Mandela Auditorium.
