Journalist and author Ben Bradlee Jr. will give the keynote address. The former Boston Globe editor led the paper’s 2003 Pulitzer Prize-winning series on abuse in the church. His paper’s investigation was the basis for “Spotlight,” which won the Academy Award for Best Picture this year. 

Tickets for the Spotlight Gala will go on sale Monday, Aug. 1. In the meantime, check out the other weekend events. Most are free and open to the public.

Please join our Mustang Media/Journalism Alumni Facebook group and connect with classmates who will be here in October. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime event. Join us and be a part of history!
