Journalist, photographer, broadcaster and author David Pratt has spent almost four decades working as a war correspondent and covering foreign affairs. In that time his work has been published and broadcast worldwide.
Among many accolades for his work, he has been named Journalist of the Year in the Scottish Press Awards. He has also twice been Reporter of the Year and twice Feature Writer of the Year and is a five-times finalist in the Amnesty International Media Awards for human rights reporting.
He is a regular contributor to the BBC and Contributing Foreign Editor with The Herald on Sunday/Sunday National. Author of Intifada – The Long Day of Rage, he is currently completing a memoir about his boyhood and years as a war correspondent. He is eminently well-qualified to talk about the horrors of war and why both combatants and some non-combatants such as journalists are drawn back time and again to wars around the world. David will also be showing some of his photographs from his time in conflict zones.
This event will be a 30- to 45-minute talk by the author followed by a Q&A session. We welcome you to stay afterwards for refreshments. Please note the finish time is an estimate and the event may finish earlier than 21.00.
There is disabled parking outside the library and there is a disabled toilet.
