Journalist and educator Lisa Loving and I definitely share a passion for community reporting and the need to help shape how media and reporting is evolving.

She asked me to speak about my work at a signing for her new book: “Street Journalist: Understand and Report the News in Your Community” this week.

I am thankful for her input on the work we’re doing, the opportunity to speak, and the entire evening’s discussion.

Ask for Loving’s book at your local bookstore, or purchase it online at Powell’s.
