On Friday, January 22, 7 p.m., the library presents “Crime Scenes & Aftermaths: Reporting & Writing from Rwanda to Hell’s Kitchen to Abu Ghraib and Beyond,” with author Philip Gourevitch.

Gourevitch is an award-winning author of books on the Rwandan genocide and Abu Ghraib, an intrepid correspondent for The New Yorker and editor of The Paris Review.

He is the 2009-2010 Eminent Writer in Residence for the MFA program in Creative Writing at the University of Wyoming, a copresenter with the Jackson Hole Writers Conference. Cost: Free. Location: Ordway Auditorium.
