Fern Shen, founder and editor, Baltimore Brew
Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery 

Fern Shen is a veteran journalist who worked at The Hartford Courant, The (Baltimore) Evening Sun and The Washington Post for 17 years. In 2009 — with mainstream media here and across the country suddenly cutting back, laying off and shutting down — she struck off into somewhat uncharted territory, founding Baltimore Brew — an online-only news website with reported news stories, culture and community dialogue.

The event is sponsored by the English and Media and Communication Studies departments, along with The Retriever Weekly. 


Admission is free.
