This summer, Aspen Public Radio is pleased to present Deborah Amos, NPR's renowned international correspondent, in a summer luncheon benefit. She will be in conversation with former NPR Senior Foreign Desk Editor Loren Jenkins about her recent assignment in Syria. The event will be hosted in an elegant Aspen residence on Thursday August, 8. Proceeds from this private appearance by Ms. Amos will assist in Aspen Public Radio’s continued commitment to provide locally produced news, cultural affairs, and talk shows that are relevant to the community we serve.

Deborah Amos covers the Middle East for NPR News. Her reports can be heard on NPR's award-winning Morning EditionAll Things Considered, and Weekend Edition.

Amos travels extensively across the Middle East covering a range of stories including the rise of well-educated Syria youth who are unqualified for jobs in a market-driven economy, a series focusing on the emerging power of Turkey, and the plight of Iraqi refugees.

A member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Amos is also the author of Eclipse of the Sunnis: Power, Exile, and Upheaval in the Middle East (Public Affairs, 2010) and Lines in the Sand: Desert Storm and the Remaking of the Arab World (Simon and Schuster, 1992).
