Michael Barbaro and “The Daily” Head to Los Angeles and San Francisco in September
This September, join “The Daily” on the West Coast.
For their first live event in Los Angeles, “The Daily” host Michael Barbaro joins national immigration reporter Caitlin Dickerson, a California native and California State University, Long Beach graduate, to discuss her groundbreaking reporting on deportation and family separations at the border. Michael will also be joined by “Daily” producer Annie Brown to reveal how their team puts together such a compelling show — five days a week.
The event takes place on Thursday, September 20 at 7:30 p.m. at The Theatre at Ace Hotel DTLA, in collaboration with Ace Hotel. Tickets can be purchased here.
On Friday, September 21, join Michael and Annie in San Francisco to discuss how they’ve transformed New York Times journalism to create a new form of audio storytelling. You’ll also hear from The Times’s Kevin Roose, columnist of “The Shift,” who will talk about his examination of social media and the midterm elections.
The event takes place at 7:30 p.m. at the Nourse Theater, in collaboration with City Arts & Lectures. Tickets can be purchased here.
A limited number of press passes are available for both California events; members of the press should contact [email protected].
