Event description: 

Internationally renowned trauma journalist Patricia Evangelista’s debut book, SOME PEOPLE NEED KILLING: A Memoir of Murder in My Country (Random House hardcover; On Sale: 10/ 17/23), is a powerful, on-the-ground account of a nation careening into a violent autocracy told through the harrowing stories of the Philippines’ state-sanctioned killings of its citizens. Evangelista’s work is a profound act of witness and tour de force of literary journalism.
