Why would anyone willingly plunge headfirst into the war-torn areas of Afghanistan, Darfur, or Libya? For photojournalist Lynsey Addario, the short, simple answer is also the title of her memoir: It’s What I Do. In focusing on humanitarian and human-rights issues, Addario has built her career on capturing powerful images in dangerous environments around the world. Despite death threats and kidnappings, she continues photographing pivotal subjects for National Geographic, the New York Times, and Time.

Join the Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist as she chronicles her harrowing work and explains what drives her to keep going back. Book signing to follow.

Please note: This presentation contains graphic images suitable only for mature audiences.

    45 Quincy St., Cambridge
  • Admission: $28, $32, $37, $48, reserved seating

Throughout history, powerful women have been called many things — witches, regents, and seductresses. But there was a time in the ancient world when at least one was called King. Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology, explores the reigns of powerful ancient queens to illuminate a time when women ruled the world. Often neglected in the history books, these strong female leaders were considered exceptions to the rule, but their power and influence are undeniable.
