KENNESAW, Ga. (Feb. 14, 2011) — New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize-winner Nicholas Kristof has rescheduled his appearance at Kennesaw State University for March 17. An earlier KSU appearance was canceled after Kristof was delayed while covering the democracy protests in Egypt.

Kristof, who has been credited with turning the world’s attention to the democracy movement in China, the crisis in Darfur and human rights abuses throughout Africa and Asia, will launch KSU’s “Pathways to Peace” lecture series. He will address KSU faculty, staff and students on campus at 3:30 p.m. and give a public lecture at 7 p.m. at the KSU Center on 3333 Busbee Drive in Kennesaw.

Those who reserved tickets for the previously scheduled Feb. 3 lecture will receive  e-mail instructions on how to reconfirm reservations for the March 17 presentations. To reserve tickets to the 7:30 p.m. lecture, go to fypevents@kennesaw.edu
