These monthly discussions welcome those who have covered conflict from the frontlines, with proceeds benefiting Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues (RISC), Sebastian Junger’s nonprofit that provides medical training to freelance journalists. The series kicks off with the best-selling author of The Perfect Storm himself, in conversation with Brooklyn Brewery cofounder and ex–Middle East war correspondent Steve Hindy. Other prominent media figures scheduled to share their experiences include Bob Woodruff of ABC News (June 12), freelance photojournalist Michael Kamber (July 10) and New York Times scribe C.J. Chivers (Sept 11). Stay for the postdiscussion reception, where you can toast the brave reporters with a cold one.
