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.
