Sonoma Speaker Series features journalist Keller
Monday February 26th 2018 -
The next Sonoma Speaker Series event is a conversation with veteran journalist Bill Keller on Monday, Feb. 26, 7-8:30 p.m., in the Hanna Boys Center Auditorium.
Keller has been an important figure in American journalism for decades. He worked at the New York Times where he wore many hats: Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and Bureau Chief in Moscow during the collapse of the Soviet Union, Bureau Chief in South Africa during the collapse of apartheid, Foreign Editor, op-ed writer, and then Executive Editor from 2003-2011. Today he heads up The Marshall Project, a nonprofit news organization that “seeks to create and sustain a sense of national urgency about the U.S. criminal justice system.”
The conversation with Keller will talk about his days at the Times, the current state of American journalism, and the important work being done by The Marshall Project.
Cost to attend ranges from $5 to $75. Hannah Boys Center is located at 17000 Arnold Dr. To buy tickets or for more information, go to www.sonomaspeakerseries.com.
