About this event:
What choices does one make in times of war? This is one of the many questions asked in The Book Thief and is mirrored in the experiences of Paul Rusesabagina during the Rwandan genocide of 1994.
Rusesabagina sheltered more than a thousand Tutsis and moderate Hutus in the hotel where he was concierge—a story captured in the film Hotel Rwanda and in Rusesabagina’s autobiography An Ordinary Man.
The humanitarian activist joins Worldview host Jerome McDonnell for a discussion about taking action against injustice.
Seating is available first come, first served. Reservations are not required. Books will be available for purchase and Mr. Rusesabagina will sign copies at the conclusion of the program.
This program is made possible with support from the Chicago Public Library Foundation.
