December 9: Immersion Journalism

Media Circus returns in December with journalists who have burrowed deep into their stories and written up the tale. Join Gelf and noted writers Ted Conover, whose works including Rolling Nowhere: Riding the Rails with America's Hoboes and Newjack: Guarding Sing Sing are synonymous with Immersionism (interview here); Brooke Kroeger, the director of the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at NYU whose database on the history of undercover reporting goes back over a century (interview here); and Avi Steinberg, author of Running the Books about his time spent working as a prison librarian (interview here).

The event will be held Thursday, December 9, at 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00 pm) at the JLA Studios gallery at 63 Pearl St. in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn-just one subway stop away from Manhattan.There is no admission charge, though your voluntary contribution will help defray the costs for this and other great Gelf events. Drinks will be served.
