From the National Geographic Website:

In 2009 National Geographic staff writer Peter Gwin and photographer Brent Stirton went on assignment to profile nomads in the Sahara. Their reporting led them to expanding foreign energy interests, armed uprisings, drug smuggling, and al Qaeda groups. Joined by Jon Sawyer, founding director of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, Gwin and Stirton will discuss their travels in the troubled region.

The event is on November 30, 2010 at 7:30 PM at National Geographic National Geographic Headquarters in Washington, DC.
