In-depth journalism: Making it work

Posted: Oct. 2, 2012 | Tags: What Went Wrong

 

Join us for "Investigative Reporting: How It's Done," Tuesday, Oct. 9, in which Executive Editor Charles Lewis will be joined by reporters Donald Barlett and James Steele to talk about their recent work. The program will be at the Katzen Arts Center at American University in Washington and is free and open to the public.

Lewis will showcase the Investigating Power website, which higlights key moments in U.S. history and the journalists who covered them. Barlett and Steele will talk about "The Betrayal of the American Dream," their new book, researched in part by Workshop staffers. Barlett and Steele collaborated the last two years on the Workshop's project, What Went Wrong: The Betrayal of the American Dream, and we published excerpts in August. 

The Oct. 9 program begins with an informal reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by the program from 7 to 8 p.m., which includes an audience Q&A. "The Betrayal" book will be available for sale and signing.
