Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Kristof, WuDunn speak at next Maverick Speakers Series event

Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn-Maverick Speakers Series

Tickets are available to see journalists and humanitarians Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn at the next Maverick Speakers Series event.

The husband-and-wife duo will speak on "A Path Appears: How an Individual Can Change the World" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, at Texas Hall. A question-and-answer session follows the lecture, as well as a autograph signing.

Kristof and WuDunn combine journalism and activism in their unique brand of reporting centered on human rights abuses and advocacy. As a couple, the pair received a Pulitzer in journalism for their coverage of China’s Tiananmen Square democracy movement, making them the first married couple to receive the honor. Their co-written novels include China Wakes: The Struggle for the Soul of a Rising Power and the best-selling Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Kristof is a columnist for The New York Times and WuDunn is a business executive and entrepreneur.

The lecture is free for students, faculty, and staff and costs $5 for community members.

VIP packages, which include a private dinner and photograph with the speaker, preferred seating, and season tickets also are available.
