Tom Zoellner’s book A Safeway in Arizona: What the Gabrielle Giffords Shooting Tells Us About the Grand Canyon State and Life in America  is not just the story of the tragedy of January 8, 2011 and what led up to it and what transpired afterward. It gives a detailed history and analysis of Tucson.
Zoellner is the author of five nonfiction books, including Train: Smoke, Iron and the Invention of the Modern World, to be published next year.  He was also the co-author of the New York Times bestselling book An Ordinary Man about the man who inspired the film “Hotel Rwanda.” He has worked as a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle and The Arizona Republic, and as a contributing editor for Men’s Healthmagazine. A Tucson native, he is an associate professor of English at Chapman University and lives in Los Angeles.
Zoellner will have a question and answer period following his talk about the book.

This lecture will interest journalism, sociology and history students, alike.
