Fairfield Public Library to hold talk by journalist Diego Cupolo
FAIRFIELD - Journalist and photographer Diego Cupolo will speak at 2 p.m. March 23 at the Fairfield Public Library Woods Branch, 1147 Fairfield Woods Road, organizers said in a release.
"Cupolo has reported on Syria, Turkey, Bulgaria, Nicaragua, Peru, and Chile. His news stories
are told through the personal accounts of those most affected by local and international policies
or conflicts," the release said. "He will share his experiences on the Syrian-Turkish border while presenting his book 'Seven Syrians--War Accounts from Syrian Refugees'," the release said.
"The book is an excellent read to understand what is happening right now to Syrian civilians, including women and children. This book is not about political statements, but about human beings."
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing, the release said.
Advanced registration is required due to the limited space, the release said. All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free. For more information and to register for this event call 203-255-7308, or visit www.fairfieldpubliclibrary.org .
