Roy Harris, Jr., talked about his book Pulitzer’s Gold: Behind the Prize for Public Service Journalism (University of Missouri Press; January 17, 2008). In the book he presents a history of the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service that is awarded annually to a newspaper for achievement in reportage.

They focused on the future of community and public service journalism which they deem fundamental to civic life. The panelists responded to questions from members of the audience.
