FIGHT TO WRITE
NPR recently reported that El Diario de Juárez, a major newspaper in one of Mexicos most violent cities, would scale back its coverage on the countrys drug war after members of a cartel killed the papers 21-year-old photographer. The photographer is only one of at least eight journalists who have been murdered in 2010 alone and many more have been threatened, kidnapped, or disappeared. State of Emergency: Censorship by Bullet in Mexico, co-presented by the PEN American Center, will dive into this heated issue with readings by Don DeLillo, Paul Auster, Laura Esquivel, and Jose Luis Martinez, among others, followed by a panel discussion with Carmen Aristegui (CNN en Español) and Adela Navarro Bello (Tijuana-based magazine Zeta), moderated by Julia Preston (The New York Times).
