What is the nature of humanitarian action in the twenty-first century? Based in large part on his experience of working with Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières ) during the Rwandan genocide, Dr James Orbinski provides a thought-provoking response to this quandary in his highly anticipated book, An Imperfect Offering (Random House Canada). Dr. Orbinski will engage in a timely on-stage conversation about the politics of compassion with Gillian Findlay of CBC TV’s The Fifth Estate, followed by a Q&A session with the audience. – A This Is Not A Reading Series event presented by Pages Books & Magazines, Random House Canada, and EYE WEEKLY.
