Finbarr O’Reilly is the co-author of Shooting Ghosts, a unique joint memoir with retired U.S. Marine Sgt. Thomas James Brennan. Their story about the unpredictability of war and its aftermath explores the things they’ve seen and done, the ways they have been affected, and how they have navigated the psychological aftershocks of war and wrestled with reforming their own identities and moral centers. O’Reilly covered Africa as a Reuters correspondent and staff photographer for 10 years. He won the World Press Photo of the Year in 2006 and has since won numerous industry awards for his multimedia work and photography. Cosponsored by the Oak Center for Human Rights and the Center for the Arts and Humanities.
