Please join us Jan. 9 for the launch of ‘What Works in Community News’

I hope you’ll join Ellen Clegg and me for the launch of our book, “What Works in Community News: Media Startups, News Deserts, and the Future of the Fourth Estate.” The event will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 9, at 7 p.m. at Brookline Booksmith. It’s free, but Booksmith asks that you register in advance. Ellen and I visited nine parts of the country to report on independent local and regional news projects, most of them startups, most of them digital. We came away with profound respect for the news entrepreneurs we met and with optimism for what the future holds.

    Congratulations, Dan. I look forward to reading this important book. I’ll check with the bookstore to see if they’re going to present a Zoom version.
