POWELL, Wyo. ─ Critically acclaimed author and National Geographic field staff writer Mark Jenkins will speak Thursday, March 22, about his work researching land mines in Cambodia. The free program begins at 4 p.m. in Room 70 of the Fagerberg Building at Northwest College.

Jenkins spent a month in Cambodia — crossing minefields, interviewing victims, and searching for Miss Landmine Cambodia — to write "The Healing Fields," which appeared in the January 2012 issue of National Geographic.

His photo-illustrated presentation titled "The Healing Fields: The Legacy of War and the Search for Miss Landmine Cambodia" expands on his National Geographic story.

He is also the author of four books, most recently "A Man's Life." His other titles are "The Hard Way," "To Timbuktu" and "Off the Map." Jenkins is currently a writer-in-residence at the University of Wyoming.
