Event Coverage Highlight

ProPublica’s Magic: Steiger and Engelberg Reveal Their Secrets

The Silurians Press Club will host Paul Steiger, ProPublica’s founding editor, and Steve Engelberg, its editor-in-chief, who will tell attendees how their newsroom has garnered its enviable reputation for investigative coups.

Their appearance is particularly timely: ProPublica has been in the forefront in the ongoing investigations of the lavish gifts received by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

Since its founding in 2008 with a $10 million infusion from a foundation, ProPublica has partnered with over 90 news organizations, including the New York Daily News, the New York Times and PBS for its award-winning investigations.

Steiger, a Bronx native, is a former managing editor of the Wall Street Journal. Engelberg, originally from the Boston area, is a former managing editor of the Oregonian and former investigations editor for the New York Times, where he spent 18 years. He is a co-author of Germs: Biological Weapons and America’s Secret War.

Ticket sales must end at noon the Monday before our luncheon. Withdrawals after that time will have to be paid as The National Arts Club will bill us for each place. We are no longer offering a Zoom livestream Because of persistent audio difficulties. A video of the event will be available on the Silurians YouTube channel a few days after the event.
