Meet Ingrid Tonight

Did you catch Oprah’s exclusive interview with Ingrid Betancourt, former Colombian presidential candidate held captive in the jungle for 6 1/2 years? In case you missed it, here’s a clip below. See her live tonight in the next First Person Arts Salon, co-presented with the Bryn Mawr Film Institute. Following a screening of The Kidnapping of Ingrid Betancourt, WHYY’s Elisabeth Perez-Luna will interview Ingrid and moderate a Q&A. She’ll also sign copies of her new memoir, Even Silence Has an End. It’s going to be an exciting evening with a woman known for her tragic past, heroic survival and complicated relationship with Colombia.
