Join the SOJC for the launch of the book Classroom 15: How the Hoover FBI Censored the Dreams of Innocent Oregon 4th Graders with a spirited talk about the genesis of the project, its development from a one-day Reporting II assignment into a two-year book publishing event, the hard-hitting news story the book tells and the role of experiential learning in a professional school.

Panelists include Julia Mueller, assignment editor; Zack Demars, lead reporter; Peter Laufer, editor.

About the book: 

How does a school pen pal project lead to an FBI inquiry and government coverup? It’s quite the story. Prolific author and James N. Wallace Chair Peter Laufer guided his Reporting II class through the process of researching, writing, and securing publication for Classroom 15: How the Hoover FBI Censored the Dreams of Innocent Oregon 4th Graders. With a foreword from SOJC alum Ann Curry ’78, the 250-page hardcover book by SOJC journalism students uncovers a previously untold tale.
