Join us for an exclusive moderated live conversation with Audie Cornish followed by a Q&A session. Co-host of NPR’s All Things Considered, Cornish comes to Washington, D.C., from Nashville, where she covered the South for NPR, including many of the Gulf states left reeling by the 2005 hurricane season. She has also covered the aftermath of other disasters, including the deaths of several miners in West Virginia in 2006, as well as the tornadoes that struck Tennessee in 2006 and Alabama in 2007. Before coming to NPR, Cornish was a reporter for Boston’s award-winning public radio station WBUR. There she covered some of the region’s major news stories, including the legalization of same sex marriage, the sexual abuse scandal in the Boston Roman Catholic Archdiocese, as well as Boston’s hosting of the Democratic National Convention. In 2005, Cornish shared in a first prize in the National Awards for Education Writing for Reading, Writing, and Race, a study of the achievement gap. We are excited to bring Audie to our virtual audiences for a timely conversation on topics ranging from the current political climate to the social justice movement.
