Janine di Giovanni in conversation with Suketu MehtaJoin McNally Jackson Nolita for a conversation in celebration of Janine di Giovanni’s new book, The Vanishing.
War reporter Janine di Giovanni has spent an award-winning journalistic career in the Middle East. It is second nature for her to find her way out of a minefield, seek shelter during a bombing raid, and perform the means to get through just about any checkpoint: Don’t make eye contact. Have your papers ready. Be polite, but firm. Never get out of your car, especially if child soldiers wielding rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) are aiming them at your heart. It’s a way of living many could not imagine or live through without a constant feeling of fear. But for Di Giovanni, it was her faith that provided her a sense of belonging and a grasp on the spirit of resiliency.
