Pulitzer Winner David K. Shipler to
Speak at Johns Hopkins

Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist David K. Shipler will speak at 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 28, in the Great Hall on The Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

The title of his talk is "The Working Poor: Invisible in America," which is also the title of his latest book. Shipler will be signing copies of his book at the event.

Shipler worked for The New York Times from 1966 to 1988, reporting from New York, Saigon, Moscow and Jerusalem before serving as chief diplomatic correspondent in Washington, D.C. He has also written for The New Yorker, The Washington Post, and The Los Angeles Times. He is the author of the books Russia: Broken Idols, Solemn Dreams; Arab and Jew: Wounded Spirits in a Promised Land, which won the Pulitzer Prize; and A Country of Strangers: Blacks and Whites in America. Shipler, who has been a guest scholar at The Brookings Institution and a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, has taught at Princeton University, American University and Dartmouth College. He lives in Chevy Chase, Md.

The talk is part of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Policy Studies' Press and Public Policy Seminar Series, which spotlights the common ground between those who study and those who report on domestic policy issues. The lecture is free and open to the public; however, reservations are requested due to limited seating. RSVP to: ksottak@jhu.edu. Parking is available for $3 in either the Stony Run Lot or San Martin Garage, which are marked as "60" and "64," respectively, on the campus map online at http://www.jhu.edu/parking/pdf/ parking_map_0905.pdf.
