Pulitzer Prize winner Samantha Power's appearance at Fairfield University cancelled


Media Advisory

 

Who:
Pulitzer Prize winner and foreign affairs specialist Samantha Power.

What:
Foreign affairs specialist Samantha Power has cancelled her upcoming appearance at Fairfield University. Power learned late last week that president-elect Barack Obama has selected her for a place on his transition team. Due to necessary security checks, Power is required to withdraw from all public engagements while security checks are in progress. If the opportunity to reschedule her appearance recurs, we will notify the public. 

Power's appearance was scheduled as part of the Inspired Writers Series, sponsored by University College, on the day of the paperback publication of her bestselling nonfiction book, "Chasing the Flame: One Man's Fight to Save the World," the full story of the UN Secretary General's Special Envoy Vieira de Mello who was killed by a suicide bomber in Baghdad.
