Local Journalism Panel Discussion Coming to The Booksmith in the Haight on August 9th

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

The Booksmith bookstore at 1644 Haight will host a local journalism community panel discussion on August 9th at 7:30 PM. Check it:

“THE EVOLVING LANDSCAPE OF LOCAL JOURNALISM: A Panel Discussion with The Bay Citizen’s LISA FRAZIER, SF Public Press MICHAEL STOLL, Mission Local‘s LYDIA CHAVEZ”

See?

O.K. then.

“This evening we bring some key players in public-interest reporting to The Booksmith to discuss the emerging models which will compete [is compete really an ambitransitive verb?] and compliment the incumbents [nice digital press you have there, Chron baby!] bringing us Bay Area news.”

All right. I don’t know, if you look at the numbers it’s hard to say how “techtonic” a shift we’ve experienced yet, but oh well.  I understand the Chronicle’s business model, I think, IMO, they’re on a sustainable journey (though some might disagree).

Anyway, the price is right for this joint – get there early, as these kinds of BookSmith events fill up early.

See you there!
