C.J. Chivers was a Metro reporter for The New York Times from 1999-2001, and he covered the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, while working in a three-reporter bureau inside police headquarters in lower Manhattan. Chivers went on to cover wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria, among others.
A former Marine Corps infantry officer who served in the 1991 Gulf War, his expertise in weaponry and military affairs make him one of the most insightful reporters on conflict today. Chivers's book, THE GUN, is a social history of the AK-47 that examines the origins and proliferation of automatic arms, and their influence on war.
Join us as former AP foreign correspondent Steve Hindy interviews Chivers about reporting from Ground Zero and his time in the Middle East. The evening will also feature work by Italian photographer Fabio Bucciarelli, whose documentation of the Syrian conflict earned him the prestigious 2013 Robert Capa Gold Medal for “photographic reporting from abroad requiring exceptional courage and enterprise.”
Ticket includes admission and a free Brooklyn Brewery beer. All proceeds from the events in this series benefit RISC (Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues).
