“Emphasizing the core values of freedom of speech, the book simply defines news as ‘anything that changes the status quo.’ It is this elegant writing that makes Laufer’s book required reading.” —John Pavlic, Rutgers University

Join us for remarks and a book signing by Peter Laufer. Featuring Laufer‘s recent book Slow News: A Manifesto for the Critical News Consumer. The event will be followed by a reception.

Peter Laufer is the author of more than a dozen books about topics ranging from butterfly collecting to Mexico-U.S. border issues to Americans imprisoned abroad. He has worked as an NBC correspondent, a radio news reporter, and has written many feature stories for national news organizations. Laufer is the James Wallace Chair Professor in Journalism at the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication.

This event is part of the Wayne Morse Center’s Media and Democracy theme of inquiry.

This event is co-sponsored by the UO School of Journalism and Communication.
