We Need to Send Someone

All across the planet, nations are struggling for an answer to the question of what to do with the millions of people fleeing war, persecution, violence, and hunger. No one seems to want this displaced population. That includes the government of Kenya, which after twenty-five years of hosting one of the world’s largest refugee camps is now trying to shut the whole thing down. Under this looming threat, the U.N.’s Denis Alma Kuindje, F07, works to project hope in what just may be a hopeless situation.

    The Storyteller

    In the years since he graduated from the Fletcher School, David Grann has become one of the world’s most revered writers. His magazine articles are lauded for their technique and depth of reporting, while his books set off frantic bidding wars for their movie rights. Meanwhile, his latest work, Killers of the Flower Moon, was named a finalist this year for the prestigious National Book Award. Amid all the frenzy, we managed to grab a few minutes of Grann’s time to discuss writing, life, and the elusiveness of history.
