June 7th at 11 am – Burying the Lede: The Truth and Fiction of News Reporting and Criminal Justice

Iowa native and author Joseph LeValley will share some of his real-life experiences as a reporter-photographer for Iowa newspapers, covering crime and the criminal justice system. He will describe encounters and relationships with law enforcement, criminals and the courts. LeValley also will describe how his years as a reporter, and the cases he covered, inspired him to write his debut novel, Burying the Lede – a story of murder, corruption, deception and the pursuit of the truth by a young reporter.
