Event description
Hella Pick, former Guardian foreign correspondent, will talk to Emma Graham-Harrison about her extraordinary life and career.

About this event

At the age of 11, Pick came to the UK on the Kindertransport following Germany’s annexation of Austria. After attending the London School of Economics, she became the UN correspondent for the Guardian in 1960 - and went on to have a dazzling career reporting on some of the most turbulent and iconic moments of the 20th and 21st centuries.

In a new memoir, Invisible Walls, Pick recounts some of the most memorable moments during her 35-year career with the Guardian, including the assassination of JFK, the end of the USSR, Martin Luther King’s march from Selma to Montgomery, and the Vietnam peace negotiation in Paris - as well as her experiences working in journalism as a former child refugee, as a woman, and as a secular Jew.

Joining Graham-Harrison, these two reporters from different generations will reflect on the evolution of the correspondent’s role, and through the lens of Pick’s incredible personal story will explore what it means to be a woman reporting on the moments that make history - both half a century ago, and today.
