Data journalist to visit virtually

Data journalist John Beebe-West will visit the SJMC virtually on Oct. 19. John is a journalist, author, and technologist—reporting the news with code. His work with the Wall Street Journal has won a Loeb award, two New York Press Club awards, a Philip Meyer award for data journalism, a SABEW award, and a Pulitzer Prize.

Beebe-West will visit Thursday, Oct. 19, from 10-10:45 a.m. in Professor Jen Wilson’s J70 class in Meredith 201, but if there’s enough interest (and space) we will move to one of the Meredith Hall auditoriums.
