Making Sense of the News, Local to Global
December 5, 2018
Goodrich Memorial Library
Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist David Moats leads a panel discussion with some of the region’s best journalists, including VTDigger founder and editor Anne Galloway and Chronicle founder and publisher Chris Braithwaite.
The First Wednesdays talks that are supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in partnership with the Pulitzer Prizes are part of the “Democracy and the Informed Citizen” Initiative, which is administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils. The initiative seeks to deepen the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the vital connections between democracy, the humanities, journalism, and an informed citizenry.
