Marie Colvin was glamorous, hard-drinking, braver than the boys, with a troubled and rackety personal life. With fierce compassion and honesty, she reported from the most dangerous places in the world, fractured by conflict and genocide. In Sri Lanka in 2001, she was hit by a grenade and lost the sight in her left eye – resulting in her trademark eye patch – and in 2012 she was killed in Syria. Fellow foreign correspondent Lindsey Hilsum has written the story of the most daring war reporter of her generation.
This event is in memory of David Hugh Prysor-Jones – a valued member of the BridLit Festival team from the beginning. For many years he was a renowned international journalist and broadcaster for the BBC and beyond.
