How can we make sure, in the United States, and Canada, that we continue to have the kind of journalism the moment calls for?

Please join Steve Katz, Publisher of Mother Jones, named 2017 Magazine of the Year, and me, Linda Solomon Wood, Editor-in-Chief of National Observer, at 7:30 p.m. on November 16 in Vancouver for a discussion of investigative journalism in the time of Trump.

As the founder and editor-in-chief of the award-winning National Observer, based here in Vancouver, I’m deeply concerned about how we can sustain independent, honest journalism that holds the powerful to account.

That’s a central question that Steve and the team at Mother Jones - which was named 2017 Magazine of the Year by the American Society of Magazine Editors - have long been involved with, too.

While the threats to journalism In both the United States and in Canada are profound, Steve and I also see signs of opportunity at MoJo and the Observer (and it’s not coincidental that both of our publications see reader support as the key to long-term sustainability).

Steve Katz, Publisher, Mother Jones

I’ll be talking with Steve about how Mother Jones has been standing up to lies with facts, and what’s next for journalism. We’ll then open the floor for your questions and suggestions.
