An Evening With New York Times Executive Editor, Bill Keller

Thursday, March 3rd

6:30PM: refreshments, socializing

7:00PM to 8:30PM: program

CUNY Graduate School of Journalism

219 W 40 Street (7th & 8th)

A Pulitzer Prize winning reporter before his jump to management, Bill Keller's informed perspectives on the business and practice of journalism, especially these days,

are bound to enlighten and provoke.

The Times has been aggressive in contending with transformative technologies that threaten the survival of many print media companies. It has built a robust Web site brimming

with opportunities for reader interactivity, video, multimedia, clever interstitials, custom apps for mobile devices, special e-mail editions, e-readers, "push" and "pull" strategies, blogs – and most recently, a foray into digital book production (e-books) with the digital-only story of the

company's adventures when presented with the Wikipedia trove (introductory essay by Keller). Plenty going on but is it the right stuff and is it enough?

Don't miss this rare opportunity for a face-to-face dialogue with Bill Keller on topics of vital interest to journalists and journalism.

Moderator: Brooke Gladstone host and managing editor of WNYC-FM / NPR's "On the Media."

Free admission for NY Press Club members (RSVP required). Response is strong, don't delay.

Non-members: $15, Students: $5. Visit our Website  for more information and to reserve.

Submissions of all kinds are welcomed – instructional, observational, reflective, reactive – almost any kind of prose or poetry is likely to be appropriate.

The goal is to offer a potpourri comprised of many voices and disparate topics. Why let that brilliant rumination on the meaning of life moulder? Send it in!

New York Press Club Spring "Mixer" at Blondies Bar

Tuesday, April 5th

6:00PM – 9:00PM

Blondies Bar

212 W 79 (B'way & Amsterdam)

Our first mixer of the year will take place in early April at a West Side watering hole popular with the sporting set.

But sports is by no means at the top of the agenda

so don't worry if you're not sure which New York baseball team plays in the Bronx. The idea is to mix & mingle.

Why not join colleagues and friends for socializing and elbow-bending on April 5th (no cover, no minimum, no RSVP, sports-talk optional, non-members welcome). Hope to see you there!
