On Wednesday, April 3 at 7 p.m.,  join John Dankosky, Vance Chair in Journalism and Mass Communications and host of WNPR’s Where We Live, in conversation with journalists who have covered violence.

Bruce Shapiro, executive director of the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma will be joined by Tina Susman, national correspondent for the Los Angeles Times, who has covered war in Iraq, Somalia and Rwanda; and WNPR reporter Jeff Cohen, who covered the Newtown shooting and its aftermath for NPR.
