Commonwealth Club: Nicholas Kristof: On Chasing Hope, A Reporter’s Life

Thursday, July 11, 2024

Nicholas Kristof has worked almost nonstop for The New York Times as a reporter, foreign correspondent, bureau chief, and now columnist.

Kristof, a Pulitzer Prize winner and best-selling author, has reported from Hong Kong, Beijing, Tokyo, as well as India, Africa and Europe.
