Martin Bell: Conflicts, Politics, and Poetry
All Library locations will close at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 18 for a staff development event.
In the same way that Walter Cronkite was “the most trusted man in America,” Martin Bell represents journalistic integrity and straight talk to several generations of Britons.
Beyond his career as a reporter, Bell is a member of the Order of the British Empire who has also been elected to Parliament, an ambassador for UNICEF, and a tireless critic of the state of journalism.
Now Bell discusses his life, his war experiences, his brief political career, and his recent incarnation as a poet.
