[VIRTUAL] Environmental Journalism in North Carolina
Join the PEN America Piedmont Region chapter and North Carolina Humanities for an interactive panel discussion examining the theme of journalism present in both of our 2020-2021 Statewide Read books, The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi and Dry by Jarrod and Neal Shusterman. This event features Adam Wagner, Lisa Sorg, Justin Catanoso, and Jack Igelman in a moderated conversation with North Carolina Humanities board trustee and UNCSA associate professor Mike Wakeford. The journalists will examine and discuss their experiences of reporting on natural disasters and environmental issues in North Carolina.
This conversation is part of “Watershed Moments,” a two-year, multiprogram initiative created by North Carolina Humanities, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, opinions, or recommendations expressed by our partners and participants do not necessarily represent those of North Carolina Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
