"Journalists: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels"
Topic of Talk at Hopkins

Sono Motoyama, editor of Baltimore's City Paper, will give a talk entitled "Journalists: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," at The Johns Hopkins University at noon on March 15.

The lecture is part of the Wednesday Noon Series, presented by the university's Office of Special Events. All programs in the series are held at noon in the Garrett Room of the Milton S. Eisenhower Library, on the university's Homewood campus at 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. Admission is free.

Motoyama was educated at Brown University and earned her master's degree from the Johns Hopkins University Writing Seminars, where she studied with John Barth, Edna O'Brien and Stephen Dixon, among others.

She has worked at various publications and publishing houses in New York, including The New Yorker, Interview, Entertainment Weekly and The Nation. Motoyama has published articles in New York Newsday, The San Francisco Examiner and Spy.

In 1993, Motoyama was hired as associate editor of City Paper, a 17-year-old weekly with a circulation of more than 90,000. She was promoted to editor in 1994 and immediately began to put her own mark on the city's alternative paper.

For information, call the Office of Special Events at (410) 516-7157.
