Lynsey Addario, Photojournalist
Roy Thomson Hall presents
Why would anyone willingly plunge headfirst into the war-torn areas of Afghanistan, Darfur, or Libya? For photojournalist Lynsey Addario, the short, simple answer is also the title of her memoir: It’s What I Do. In focusing on humanitarian and human-rights issues, Lynsey has built her career on capturing powerful images in dangerous environments around the world. Despite death threats and kidnappings, she continues photographing pivotal subjects for National Geographic, the New York Times, and Time. Join the Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist as she chronicles her harrowing work and explains what drives her—despite having a family—to keep going back.
We are happy to announce that Dr. Marianne Mader will be joining us on stage at Roy Thomson Hall as the new host and Q+A facilitator of our National Geographic Live speaker series.
Dr. Mader has dedicated her career to sharing her passion for science and is currently the Executive Director for the Canadian Association of Science Centres, representing over 60 organizations across Canada.
