Recent Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists from the Miami Herald and the Sun Sentinel will discuss their work as part of a panel discussion at Florida International University in honor of the prestigious prize’s centennial anniversary.
The two papers and the university teamed up to give students and public a chance to hear how the prize-winning stories came together.
The panel will feature Miami Herald photographer Patrick Farrell and Caribbean correspondent Jacqueline Charles, whose work resulted in Farrell’s 2009 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography in Haiti after devastating hurricanes. Also on the panel: Sally Kestin, a Sun Sentinel investigative reporter, and John Maines, a database editor, who together produced ‘Speeding Cops,’ the winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize Gold Medal for Public Service.
The discussion will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at Florida International University’s Biscayne Bay Campus, 3000 NE 151st St. Hospitality Management 135. For more information, visit http://sjmc-med.fiu.edu/commweek/events/hearst/.
