What: Paul Rusesabagina, Hotel Rwanda, A Meet the Author Program

Who: Paul Rusesabagina, the man whose heroism inspired the Academy-Award nominated film Hotel Rwanda. In conversation with Georgette Gagnon, the Deputy Director of the Africa Division, Human Rights Watch

Event: This April marks the twelfth anniversary of the Rwandan genocide when almost one million people were killed. Paul Rusesabagina, the hotel manager who saved the lives of over 1,200 fellow Rwandans during the horrific events of 1994, and whose story was recently portrayed by Don Cheadle in the film Hotel Rwanda, will discuss the events depicted in the movie, including both the international response and his own role. Rusesabagina has since become the most prominent public face—and nearly the only recognized hero—of Rwanda’s bloody conflict. In his new memoir, An Ordinary Man, he relays a story of remarkable courage and compassion in the face of genocidal terror.

When: April 21st; 11:15 AM, Program: Noon, Book signing to follow
Where: Marines' Memorial Theater, 609 Sutter Street (at Mason), 2nd Floor, San Francisco Admission Costs: Members and cosponsors: $25; Nonmembers: $35 Regular seating: Council members and cosponsors: $10, Nonmembers: $20
