Adam Hochschild interviewed by Julia Flynn Siler

Bestselling author Adam Hochschild’s new collection of essays explores, as he writes, “people who took a stand against despotism, who spoke out against unjust wars, or who saw the evils of institutions like slavery or colonialism when, all around them, others took such things for granted.” “Lessons from a Dark Time” profiles the survivor-director of a Congolese center for rape victims, the humane penal system in Finland, Mandela on the campaign trail—and much more. A Festival favorite, Hochschild has the skills of a journalist, the knowledge of a historian, and the heart of an activist.
