Join us for an exciting look into the world of an award-winning foreign correspondent. Luke will talk about life as a foreign correspondent; how he came to be deported from Russia while reporting on Putin; the damaged personality of Julian Assange and the story behind one of the world’s most wanted men, Edward Snowden.
Luke Harding is a journalist, writer and award-winning correspondent with the Guardian. He has reported from Delhi, Berlin and Moscow and covered wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria. Between 2007 and 2011 he was the Guardian's Moscow bureau chief. The Kremlin expelled him from the country in the first case of its kind since the Cold War.
His book ‘The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man’ was published on February 11, 2014 by Vintage Books in the US and by Guardian Faber in the UK. ‘The Snowden Files’ has also been published in Brazil, China, Korea, Norway, Holland, Portugal and Japan, to date.
