Alan Rusbridger in Conversation with Stewart Purvis
Conversation starts at 6.30pm
The Groucho Club, Dean Street, W1D
Alan Rusbridger is one of the modern editorial greats of the British Press. His time at the Guardian was unique and ground-breaking.
For starters, it exposed phone-hacking, published Wikileaks, and both Snowden and the Panama Papers. He (and it) won a Pulitzer Prize for their work.
But his Guardian was also leaking funds and heading for bankruptcy, thanks to the wide-ranging digital experiments it undertook.
Which Alan Rusbridger will history recognise? He has written his testament for the past, present, and future of journalism in Breaking News: The Remaking of Journalism and Why It Matters Now, to be published by Canongate in September.
Join Alan at the Groucho Club on Monday, September 10th in conversation with Professor Stewart Purvis CBE, former Editor in Chief of ITN and a broadcasting journalism great himself.
Where: The Groucho Club, 6.30pm for a prompt 7pm start.
