The Post finally portrays the central role that Katherine Graham, the first female publisher of a U.S. newspaper, played in the pivotal decision to publish the Pentagon Papers. Join Vera Bergengruen '11, national security correspondent at BuzzFeed News, to view the film and for an informal discussion of its themes and the world of journalism today.
To attend, please buy your own ticket online for the January 17 showing at 7:20 p.m. at the Landmark Atlantic Plumbing Cinema, and email Vera to let her know you are coming. She'll let you know about our meet-up spot at the theater so we can sit together. Afterwards, we will go to Right Proper for conversation. If you have seen the film already but want to join the conversation, you are welcome to meet us there! (The theater is located at 807 V Street NW, between 8th & 9th Streets NW, Washington D.C., 20001; Metro and parking info is available here. Right Proper's Shaw Brewpub is 2 blocks from the theater at 624 T Street NW.)
Vera is in the early stages of creating a group of Dartmouth alumni in journalism, so if you cannot make the movie, but are interested in future get-togethers, send her an email as well!
