Over the past 60 years we’ve won many battles for freedom of the press and equal rights and seen a metamorphis in the media landscape. Yet the business of communication — of storytelling — is in many ways the same.
New Mexico Press Women preserves this legacy while helping us adapt to technological and cultural changes and welcoming new members to the profession. Please join us in celebrating NMPW’s 60th anniversary at the annual conference Friday, April 16-Saturday, April 17, at the Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown.
The conference features keynote speaker Hank Stuever, an award-winning pop culture writer for the Washington Post’s Style section, where he has worked for the past decade. He is currently the paper’s television critic. He has also been a reporter for newspapers in Albuquerque and Austin, and has twice been named a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in feature writing. Stuever is the author of “Off Ramp,” an essay collection, and “Tinsel,” a nonfiction book about Christmas. He has appeared on Today, The View, The Early Show, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, MSNBC and National Public Radio. He lives in Washington, D.C.
