Ginger Rutland: Sacramento Living Library February 21
Time Tested Books is proud to announce the second entry in our 2010 Sacramento Living Library series, this time focusing on the local media landscape with award-winning Sacramento journalist Ginger Rutland. January's kick-off event with Russ Solomon packed the house, and we're excited about the response the series is getting already. The 21st is sure to be another don't-miss evening, so don't miss it!
Rutland, a columnist and associate editor with the Sacramento Bee and a frequent commentator on Capital Public Radio, will talk about media and journalism in the digital age as well as the kinds of issues she is known for covering with passion and penetration, including homelessness, politics, crime and the environment. She will appear in conversation with fellow CPR and NPR reporter Mark Jones.
Before joining the Bee, Ginger was the Capital Bureau reporter for KRON-TV, the NBC affiliate in San Francisco, from 1978-88, where she earned an Emmy for a documentary on the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant. She also reported extensively on pesticide issues and selenium contamination at the Kesterson Wildlife Refuge in California’s San Joaquin Valley, and in 1993 she won the National Council on Crime and Delinquency’s PASS Award for her editorials on juvenile justice. Mark Jones has worked in almost every department at Capital Public Radio. He currently engineers most of the stations’ special live productions, as well as working on Insight, KXJZ’s Morning Edition, and Stephen Peithman's Connections program.
The event is on Sunday, February 21st, at 7:00pm, and admission is free.
