Nicholas Kristof is a journalist, author, New York Times op-ed columnist and blogger, and winner of two Pulitzer Prizes. Although his career started with economics and presidential politics, he has become most famous for his work covering issues of gender, global health, and poverty in the developing world.
The first married couple to win the Pulitzer Prize, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn are acclaimed for their reporting about international social injustices, women’s issues, and Asia’s economic ascendance. In 2009 they received the Dayton Literary Peace Prize’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Kristof has written for the New York Times since 2001, during which time he received an additional Pulitzer for his columns about the genocide in Darfur. The co-authors of two previous bestsellers, including Half the Sky, Kristof and WuDunn’s new book is an ambitiously profound look at people who are making the world a better place and the ways in which we can support their efforts. He will be speaking on their new book, A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity, which will be released in September.
