Award-Winning Journalists Highlight Annual Foster-Foreman Conference

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Anna Wolfe and Pulitzer Prize-nominated Penn State alumna Lyndsay Green are set to be the featured speakers at this year’s Foster-Foreman Conference of Distinguished Writers on October 23 and 24.

Both sessions are free and open to the public. The conference will take place in the Freeman Auditorium of the HUB.

Each day of the conference will begin at 6 p.m. with question-and-answer segments following both speeches.

Wolfe, of Mississippi Today, will speak on her experiences covering inequality and corruption in the government. She won the Pulitzer Prize for local reporting for her work “The Backchannel” which revealed how the former governor of Mississippi used his power to steal millions to benefit himself and his friends, including former NFL quarterback Brett Favre.

Green, who works at the Detroit Free Press, earned a degree in journalism from Penn State in 2010. She was named a Pulitzer finalist in the criticism category in 2023. She also won the James Beard Award for Emerging Voice in Journalism this year.
