It’s not too late…

… to hear photojournalist Melanie Burford discuss her work in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Last night, she delivered a spellbinding presentation on the effect of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on the lives of an already-threatened bayou fishing community, Delacroix Island, and she speaks again tonight, Weds., February 16, at 6:30, in Kilworth Chapel. Tonight’s talk is titled “Eyes of the Storm: The Photographic Story of Hurricane Katrina,” and will cover the work for which she and her fellow Dallas Morning News photographers earned a 2006 Pulitzer Prize. Burford’s presentations are part of the Brown and Haley Lecture Series, and are free and open to the public. More information on Burford, her work, and tonight’s lecture here.
