On April 27, 2022, the Gateway Journalism Review will host a conversation with Evan Osnos, an author, New Yorker staff writer, and a former Pulitzer Center grantee.
The event, moderated by Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer, will highlight the breadth of Osnos' work, from reporting on Russia-Ukraine relations to the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. His Pulitzer Center-supported work analyzed the nuclear crisis through the lens of Kim Jong Un's North Korea. The Gateway Journalism Review event will also honor the late journalist and professor William Recktenwald.
To register, individuals are asked to make a donation to the publication in support of its efforts promoting a better-informed society and the First Amendment. Interested community members and students at Southern Illinois University Carbondale and Northwestern University can participate at no charge by joining watch parties in Carbondale and Chicago, respectively.
Founded more than 50 years ago, the Gateway Journalism Review examines mass media with a focus on the Midwest. The Pulitzer Center has supported the publication through its 2021 investigation of police accountability and The 1857 Project, a 2020 special issue on the legacy of "slavery, segregation, and racism" in the St. Louis area.
