This year's event will feature a conversation with Louise Kiernan, editor-in-chief of ProPublica Illinois, which launched in October as the first regional operation of ProPublica. Kiernan came to ProPublica from Northwestern University, where she was an associate professor of journalism, focusing on investigative and narrative reporting, and the leader of the program’s social justice and investigative journalism specialization. Prior to that, she worked for the Chicago Tribune for 18 years, serving as the newspaper’s enterprise editor, writing coach, urban affairs team editor and a special projects team editor and reporter, among other roles. She was the lead writer on a project that won the Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting and has also been a Pulitzer finalist.
