JACKSONVILLE – Don Oberdorfer, an author and former "Washington Post" reporter, will discuss “The Nuclear Crisis with North Korea” on Wednesday, Feb. 4, at 7:30 p.m. at the University Center on the University of North Florida campus.

The lecture, sponsored by the World Affairs Council and UNF’s offices of Academic Affairs and Institutional Advancement, is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

Oberdorfer spent 17 of his 38 years with the "Washington Post" as the paper’s diplomatic correspondent. Before retiring in 1993, he covered the White House and Northeast Asia. He also is the author of several books, including the “Two Koreas” and “Tet!: The Turning Point in the Vietnam War.” Oberdorfer’s latest book, “Senator Mansfield: The Extraordinary Life of a Great American Statesman and Diplomat,” was released last fall.

Since retiring, Oberdorfer has been the journalist-in-residence at the Foreign Policy Institute of Johns Hopkins University’s Nitze School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, D.C.
