Don't miss this special opportunity to spend an intimate evening getting to know (and listen to) one of the most well-traveled, insightful and brilliant Philadelphians! Trudy Rubin is the foreign affairs columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer and frequently travels abroad to South Asia and the Middle East. She has special expertise on Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, the Israeli-Palestinian issue, international terrorism, and United States foreign policy. Before coming to the Inquirer in 1983, Ms. Rubin was Middle East correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor, covering Israel and the Arab world, and lived in Jerusalem and Beirut.
Trudy Rubin is the author of “Willful Blindness: The Bush Administration and Iraq,” a book of her columns from 2002-04. In 2001 she was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in commentary and in 2008 she was awarded the Edward Weinthal prize for international reporting. In 2010 she won the Arthur Ross award for international commentary from the Academy of American Diplomacy.
Ms. Rubin is a graduate of Smith College and the London School of Economics.
The event includes a light dinner at 6:00 followed by a presentation and a question and answer session.
This event is being held in the private home of TTN member Marciarose Shestack so space is limited. Register early to be assured of your opportunity to meet and hear Ms. Rubin on critical topics that affect our world.
