About this Event

In partnership with the International Writing Program at University of Iowa, Liljestrand Foundation is pleased to announce the preview of an annual series of international summits that value peace, greater global awareness and environmental stewardship from the perspective of arts and culture.

We hope you will join us for the keynote presentation by best-selling author, Simon Winchester at East-West Center Keoni Auditorium. Reception to follow.

It is conventionally accepted that the Pacific will be the stage for some kind of confrontation between the United States and China, or one of her proxies. But what if other forces were at work, more dangerous still, and with consequences likely to affect everyone around the planet’s largest and most important ocean?

Simon Winchester, OBE, a British writer, journalist and broadcaster, has spent his career as a correspondent in the UK, US, Middle East, South America and Asia. In 1997, he moved to New York and penned the New York Times best-seller, The Professor and the Madman. He now works entirely as an author having written many successful non-fiction titles including Pacific, Krakatoa and The Map that Changed the World. Mr. Winchester was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire 'for services to journalism and literature' in 2006.
