The Online News Association describes this part of the event as a bonus, "an evening of conversation to unearth the news and information needs of the local community" on Oct. 21,
The Poynter Institute's conversation is set for 7 to 9 p.m. and described as:
"What Now?: What’s working in other communities not served by a newspaper? What are the immediate and long-term remedies in Ann Arbor? Where can other organizations step in and serve the community?"
There's a reception at 6 p.m, which follows a workshop for citizen journalism.
Update: I was told Monday morning there is no charge and an update with more details coming.
All events will be held at the Campus Inn in Ann Arbor.
