Ronan Farrow

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ronan Farrow will speak on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019, at Weber State University. 

OGDEN — Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ronan Farrow will speak at Weber State University on Saturday evening, as part of the “Browning Presents!” series.

Farrow’s speech will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, in the Browning Center’s Austad Auditorum on campus, at 3848 Harrison Blvd.

As an investigative reporter, Farrow first published the allegations of sexual assault against film mogul Harvey Weinstein. A regular contributor to The New Yorker magazine, he is also author of the book “War on Peace: The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence.”

Farrow is considered an influential voice in government and media. He was twice named one of Forbes magazine’s “30 Under 30” most influential people in law and policy. His reporting on sexual harassment for The New Yorker won the Pulitzer Prize.

Farrow served as a U.S. State Department diplomat in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and reported to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the U.S.’s first special adviser for global youth during the Arab Spring revolutions. He is a Yale Law School graduate, a member of the New York Bar and attended Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar.

The “Browning Presents!” series brings internationally known artists, performers and speakers to campus.

As Farrow’s presentation will address some difficult topics, the university has announced it will offer a Safe@Weber Advocate at the back of the auditorium (identified by a purple “Safe@Weber” shirt), as well as representatives from the WSU Counseling & Psychological Services Center.

Tickets are $15 to $50, available at weberstatetickets.com or 801-626-8500.
