June 6, 2018 - Jedwin Smith:
Our Brother’s Keeper
The recipient of 57 major writing awards during his 36
years as a print journalist, Jedwin Smith twice was
nominated for the Pulitzer Prize as a war correspondent
— in 1984 for his coverage of the United States Marine
Corps peace-keeping force in Beirut, Lebanon; and in 1986
for his extensive coverage of Africa's longest and deadliest struggle, the
Eritrea-Ethiopia civil war, for which he was a Pulitzer nalist. He is the author
of Fatal Treasure, Atocha, Let's Get It On, and the Vietnam memoir Our Brother’s
Keeper (John Wiley & Sons, 2005) in which Smith tells the story of one family
that has lived with death by remembrance, and of a man who found
redemption when he wanted revenge.
