Aspen Public Radio is excited to offer a special evening of conversation with NPR International Correspondent Deborah Amos. On Wednesday, August 7 at 6 pm at the Third Street Center in Carbondale, Deborah Amos will be interviewed by former NPR Senior Foreign Desk Editor Loren Jenkins about her recent journalistic assignment in Syria. The evening is one of many ways that APR fulfills its commitment to bringing the finest NPR journalists, hosts, and editors to the Roaring Fork Valley.
Deborah Amos covers the Middle East for NPR News. Her reports can be heard on NPR's award-winning Morning Edition, All 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).
