Book Launch & Film Release
Wednesday, November 20, 2019 11:00 AM
Join us to celebrate the release of the book Documenting the City: Journalism Inspired by Edith Evans Asbury, featuring the work of the Gardiner-Shenker Student Scholars.
This beautiful volume is filled with writing and photography by LaGuardia students who worked on a year-long project with the LaGuardia and Wagner Archives last year. The students researched the work of pioneering New York Times journalist Edith Evans Asbury and wrote articles and took photographs inspired by her reporting. This project was funded by the Robert D.L. Gardiner Foundation.
We will screen short film about the Women in Journalism project and light refreshments will be served. Classes, students, staff, faculty are all welcome.
