All Eyes on New Hampshire: Political Coverage in the Granite State

Is political journalism different because of New Hampshire’s first in the nation status? Questions are flying about whether the Granite State is still the best state to kick off the presidential primary, which leads us to ask, what will happen if New Hampshire loses its coveted standing? In a conversation moderated by Dr. Christine Gustafson of Saint Anselm College, we'll hear from a political science professor and three well-known journalists with different audiences–national, state, and local–to reflect on how news coverage changes at different levels of government and whether it is the same, or different, in New Hampshire.

Cost is $15 per person and includes appetizers and one beverage (beer, wine, or non-alcoholic drink) in the relaxed atmosphere ofTwin Barns Brewing Co.
