If you are interested in the state of journalism or the newsgathering process, an event coming up later this week at Principia College may be for you. The college will host Monitor Night Live on Thursday at Wanamaker Hall. Event Coordinator Sue Thoma tells The Big Z that Christian Science Monitor editor Marshall Ingwerson will be joined by correspondent Patrik Jonsson and photographer Melanie Stetson Freeman on stage in the auditorium. She says they will also have two guests from abroad participate via Skype.
