Three-Time Pulitzer Prize Winner To Speak At Foster-Foreman Conference

Penn State alum and renowned investigative reporter Paul Pringle will return to University Park at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 18, to speak about his career as part of the Foster-Foreman Conference of Distinguished Writers.

The public lecture will be free to attend and held in Carnegie Cinema at 113 Carnegie Building.

Pringle will speak about his work at the Los Angeles Times as well as his new book highlighting his investigation into drug use by the dean of USC Keck School of Medicine and the lack of response from the Pasadena Police Department.

The session, titled “Bad City: Investigating Corruption and Power in Los Angeles,” is based on Pringle’s newest book published earlier this year. The New York Times called it a “master class in investigative journalism.”

“It’s great to bring Paul Pringle back to Penn State. His body of work is a testament to the impact even a single dedicated journalist can have on a major city,” John Affleck, head of the Penn State Journalism Department, said.

A 1979 Penn State graduate, Pringle is a three-time Pulitzer Prize recipient for investigative reporting (2019), public service (2011), and breaking news (2004).
