The Meet the Press lecture series brings yet another amazing speaker to campus: New York Times reporter and multimedia producer Sarah Kramer ’96.5. She will come to BiHall 220 tomorrow at 4:30PM to talk about “personal narratives in the digital age.” For those of you who are fan of the “How Did You Get Here?” multimedia pieces on Middlebury’s home page, you are going to be very excited about Kramer. She produced two of the most innovative multimedia journalism projects to date for the New York Times: “One in 8 Million,” which captures the stories of ordinary people who live in New York City and “Coming Out,” where teenagers throughout the country speak about their struggles coming out as gay or lesbian.
Meet the Press, which brought NPR producer Jay Allison to Middlebury last Fall, was started by Middlebury Scholar-in-Residence and author Sue Halpern. She started it “to bring newsmakers – reporters, editors, critics, photojournalists, bloggers and editorialists – to the Middlebury campus.”
Not to miss for anyone interested in journalism, storytelling, or multimedia.
