The Timbuktu, Mali's Hero of Culture





The Librarian Who Saved Timbuktu’s Cultural Treasures From al Qaeda



A middle-aged book collector in Mali helped keep the fabled city’s libraries, books and manuscripts safe from occupying jihadists. A true hero.



Thanking Joshua Hammer and Wall Street Journal... and Melody Fahey.
