Have lunch Friday with NPR’s Howard Berkes

Howard Berkes, who recently retired from National Public Radio, will be in town this week to be honored at the Al Smith Dinner as one of the winners of the 2019 Tom and Pat Gish Award for courage, tenacity and integrity in rural journalism.

Before he leaves Friday, Berkes has agreed to have an informal lunch with members of the Bluegrass Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, as well as other interested local journalists.  Join us Friday at noon at Goodfellas Pizza in the Distillery District, 1228 Manchester St.
