High Country News – Editor Meet & Greet

High Country News Executive Director Paul Larmer will be on campus the afternoon of Friday, May 13. He’s coming here to recognize HCN founder Tom Bell, who will receive an honorary doctorate from UW this semester. “I can tell you, the High Country News internship was one of the most rewarding and valuable experiences of my life,” said Emilene Ostlind, editor of Western Confluence magazine, which is published by the UW Haub School.

If you would like to join a lively discussion with Paul about independent environmental journalism, the HCN internship program, Tom Bell’s legacy in the West, or other such thought-provoking topics, please join us in the Kendall House living room at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 13. (The Kendall House is at 804 Fremont St, near the Classroom Building).

This will be a very casual conversation. Please forward this invitation to any students or others who may be interested in joining.
