October 17 — “The Fear” lecture on Zimbabwe

A great event for students in COR 230!

For further information: visit the Vermont Council on World Affairs Facebook link to this event.

Where & When: UVM’s Ira Allen Chapel, 4 p.m.

Peter Godwin, the well-known Zimbabwean author and memoirist, will present his talk titled “The Fear: Robert Mugabe and the Martyrdom of Zimbabwe,” which is about his most recent book of the same title, which was published this past March.

The author of three previous books on Zimbabwe, Godwin’s works have served to message the international community of the recent and ongoing political and economic travails of that country.

Below are three reviews of The Fear, from, respectively, the New York Times, Time magazine, and The Economist:
