In late August, 89.1 WBOI was honored to play host to NPR correspondent Kelly McEvers, who gave a lecture at the Manchester University College of Pharmacy.
McEvers was a foreign correspondent for many years, reporting from the likes of Cambodia, Indonesia, and most recently, the Middle East. After being stationed in Iraq, she was sent to cover the Arab Spring, as citizens across the region attempted to topple dictators who had long held power in their respective countries.
