Comin' home

Emily Harris, a correspondent for National Public Radio, will discuss how she became a radio journalist, and her experiences reporting from Iraq, at 7:30 Saturday evening at First Unitarian Church at SW 12th and Salmon in Portland.

A Portland native and Yale graduate, Harris is currently pursuing a journalism fellowship at Stanford. She got her radio journalism start at KBOO-FM (90.7) in Portland, and went on to become an NPR correspondent. She has worked on Bill Moyers's show, All Things Considered and Morning Edition; for a time she served as NPR's main presence in Berlin, and also has been stationed in Russia.

Harris will be speaking to raise funds for and awareness of Young Musicians & Artists, a summer arts and music program for youth. Harris spent many summers at YMA, where she was both a student and then a counselor. Harris eventually met her husband, Collin Oldham, at the camp.

Young Musicians and Artists is currently celebrating its 40th anniversary, and has been on the campus of Willamette University for the last 31 years. Tickets for Harris's talk ($15/general, $10/students and seniors) can be purchased at the door, or in advance by calling Young Musicians & Artists, 503-281-9528.

Thanks for letting everybody know about this event and thanks a lot for the link, Jack!

I'm sure Emily (who is really great fun and smart as a whip) has deleted this from her resume: Rose Festival Princess. Yup, from Lincoln High, back in the 80s.
