Join a distinguished panel in recalling the broad, humane reach of the extraordinary journalist Anthony Shadid.
When The New York Times correspondent Anthony Shadid died in February along the Turkish-Syrian border, the world lost more than a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter. It lost the soul and conscience of international journalism, and a man widely considered the greatest correspondent of his generation.
