Thursday, January 8th, 7:00 pm Grassroots Journalism - Discussion with author Eesha Williams New College Theater, 777 Valencia Street, San Francisco Live Audio Webcast (see instructions below) Award-winning journalist Eesha Williams will discuss his book Grassroots Journalism: A Practical Manual for Doing the Kind of Newswriting that Doesn't Just Get People Angry, But Active — That Doesn't Just Inform, But Inspires [Apex Press]. Williams, a Vermont-based freelance journalist, is winner of Vermont’s highest award for investigative journalism for 2003, the Vermont Press Association's Mavis Doyle Award. According to the Boston Globe (5/22/2003) Williams, who had been a staff reporter, was fired for union organizing last year by the Brattleboro Reformer daily newspaper, which (like the Oakland Tribune) is owned by the Denver Post chain. Grassroots Journalism is a practical manual for the kind of newswriting that does not just get people aroused, but gets them engaged in the struggle to build a better world. The book has won praise (see back cover at www.yahoo.com) from Ralph Nader, Columbia Journalism Review, three-time Santa Cruz mayor Michael Rotkin, Norman Solomon, Andrea Buffa, Robert McChesney, John Nichols, Janine Jackson and others.
