The 2018 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Nadia Murad will give a free public talk at Duke University on Monday, Oct. 29.

She will give the 2018 Crown Lecture in Ethics at Penn Pavilion from 5:30-7 p.m., followed by a reception and book signing.

Tickets are required for the event, "Truth is My Weapon: A Campaign Against Sexual Violence and Genocide," and will be available at or for pick-up at the university box office starting Oct. 23.

Murad, a 24-year-old Yazidi minority from northern Iraq, won the prestigious award for her work fighting sexual violence as an act of war. She is on a mission to end genocide and hold accountable those who commit these war crimes.

Her book, "The Last Girl," will be available for sale at the Duke event.

Judith Kelley, dean of the Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy and an expert in international relations, will interview Murad.
