World Affairs Council of Houston says
Nicholas Kristof is a two-time Pulitzer Prize winning journalist for The New York Times. His op-ed columns bring readers face to face with the problems that plague our understanding of human rights and social justice. He is widely known for his joint coverage, with his wife Sheryl WuDunn, of the Tienanmen Square massacre, as well as for his coverage of the genocide in Darfur.

In his most recent book, A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity, Kristof and his wife Sheryl examine the art and science of giving and bring to light the compelling and inspiring truth of how real people have changed the world, defying the idea that one person can’t make a difference. The book has been described as a “road map to becoming the most effective global citizens we can be”.

Kristof is also the recipient of a vast number of recognitions, including the George Polk Award, the Overseas Press Club Award, the Michael Kelly Award, the Online News Association Award, and the American Society of Newspaper Editors Award. To date, he and his wife have co-authored six books including the national bestseller, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwid
