New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof — a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the author of the book selected as this year’s UC Davis Campus Community Book Project — speaks at 8 p.m. Monday in Jackson Hall at the Mondavi Center.

Kristof is known as an extraordinary thinker, human rights advocate and chronicler of humanity. A seasoned journalist, he has traveled the major roads and minor byways of China, Africa, India and South Asia, offering a compassionate glimpse into global health, poverty and gender in the developing world.

His book “Half The Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity For Women Worldwide,” which he co-authored with his wife Sheryl WuDunn — also a Pulitzer winner — asserts that the global struggle for women’s equality is “the paramount moral challenge” of our era.

Kristof’s talk will be followed by a question-and-answer session moderated by Beth Ruyak, host of Capital Public Radio’s interview program “Insight.”

Tickets are $45 general, $20 for UC Davis students, and are available at www.mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787.

There is also a related free event in Jackson Hall at 4 p.m. Monday, titled “All Hands on Deck: Supporting Women in STEM” and another free event Tuesday, Jan. 21, titled “Women Feeding the World: Farmers, Mothers and CEOs.”

The second event will highlight women’s global role in agriculture, food and nutrition. It will run from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the UCD Conference Center Ballroom. The evening will include presentations by women who will share their experiences — locally and internationally — in agriculture, nutrition, leadership and motherhood.

An online photo gallery with accompanying stories that illustrate women’s contributions to food and agriculture, as well as more information about the event and the Campus Community Book Project, are available at http://occr.ucdavis.edu/ccbp2013/womenfeedingtheworld.html.

For more information, contact Brenda Dawson, communications coordinator for the Horticulture Collaborative Research Support Program at UCD, at 530-752-7992 or bldawson@ucdavis.edu.
