Freelance journalist Nicholas Schmidle will discuss his experiences covering events in Pakistan in a talk at Brooks Memorial Library in Brattleboro on Wensday, April 7. His talk, "To Live or Perish Forever: Two Tumultuous Years in Pakistan," is part of the Vermont Humanities Council's First Wednesdays lecture series and takes place at 7 p.m.
Schmidle spent two years as a journalism fellow in Pakistan. His talk will reveal a country-complicated, dangerous, and fragile-that looks to be the battleground for the future of the Muslim world.
Schmidle writes for the New York Times Magazine, Slate, The New Republic, Smithsonian, and other publications.
