Samantha Power

Monday, November 18, 7:30 p.m.

Location: The Hockaday School, Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Theater
In partnership with World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth 

In her new memoir The Education of an Idealist, Pulitzer Prize winner Samantha Power traces her distinctly American journey from Irish immigrant to human rights activist to US Ambassador to the United Nations. Heralded by President Barack Obama as one of America’s “foremost thinkers on foreign policy,” Power reminds us how the United States can lead, and why there is always something each of us can do to advance the cause of human dignity. This memoir is a humorous, stirring, and unforgettable account of the world-changing power of idealism and one person’s fierce determination to make a difference.
