The talk runs from 5 to 7 p.m. in room 229 at the Abbotsford campus, 33844 King Rd.

Carrier will discuss his experience as an independent journalist over the past three decades, reflecting on his favourite stories and how to make it in radio (even if you don’t have the proper credentials).

The free talk will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

Carrier is an independent writer and radio producer whose work has been featured in magazines such as Esquire, Rolling Stone and Harper’s and public radio programs such as All Things Considered, This American Life and Marketplace.

In 2007 he won a Peabody Award for his coverage from the US/Mexico border.

Now he produces Home of the Brave, a podcast about current affairs with approximately 150,000 subscribers around the world. He lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.

This is the first in a three-part event series to coincide with the CIVL Mini-School.

These events are designed to promote arts and culture and storytelling in Abbotsford.
