NPR's Joshua Johnson: How to Talk with America
Think & Drink events are hosted conversations at pubs and tasting rooms on provocative topics and new ideas.

In a country of 320 million people, with polarization reaching crisis proportions and a firehose of news flowing from the White House, how does a journalist decide what matters? With all of its complexity and division, what news stories reflect the American moment?

NPR reporter Joshua Johnson has taken on this ambitious task during his first year as the host of 1A. The national nightly news program, named after the First Amendment, aims not only to act as a national mirror, but to bridge our raging divide by providing a place where everyone is treated with respect and empathy.

Join us for a conversation with a journalist on the front lines of our tense national discourse. How does journalism shape our national identity? How does a reporter attempt civil conversation when outrage is commonplace? Should journalists fight back when being attacked as enemies of the people, and if so, can they remain objective? Moderated by Pulitzer Prize-nominated KUOW reporter Sydney Brownstone, discover the decisions and drama shaping journalism during this tumultuous time in American history.

Registration is required for this free event. Presented by Humanities Washington and KUOW. This event is part of our fall statewide series, "Moment of Truth: Journalism and Democracy in an Age of Misinformation."

Founded in 1973, Humanities Washington is the state's flagship profit for public humanities programming and an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

We thank The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership.
