On Wednesday, February 7, 2018, Pulitzer Center grantee journalist Reese Erlich speaks at Davidson College as part of his visit to the Campus Consortium partner. Recently returned from Iran, Erlich shares what he learned from high level government officials as well as ordinary citizens including their views on President Trump's policies. 

Erlich's history in journalism goes back over 40 years. Today he works as a full-time, freelance print and broadcast reporter, filing for National Public Radio, CBC Radio, and GlobalPost among others. 

His reporting from the Middle East has produced several books including "Target Iraq," co-authored with Norman Solomon and a best seller in 2003, "The Iran Agenda: The Real Story of U.S. Policy and the Middle East Crisis" (2007), and "Syrian Uprising: Assad, the Rebels and U.S. Policy" (2014).
