The long-awaiting evening with New York Times investigative reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, presented by the Cleveland Jewish News, is here.
Delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists will be at The Temple-Tifereth Israel at 26000 Shaker Blvd., in Beachwood at 7 p.m. Sept. 30. The event is nearly sold out.
Kantor and Twohey broke the story of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of abuse, and in doing so, they ignited a movement that exposed abuses across industries. They will discuss how they exposed secrets hidden for decades and what made the story resonate. Their work in October 2017 helped spur new laws, policies and standards of accountability around the globe. Together with a team of colleagues who exposed harassment across industries, they were awarded the Pulitzer Prize for public service, journalism’s highest award. They will discuss social progress and the #MeToo movement.
They are the authors of the bestseller “She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement.”
A question-and-answer session with Kantor and Twohey will follow, moderated by Monica Robins, CJN Health Columnist and 3News Senior Health Correspondent.
Tickets are $100 for a VIP reception, which will take place outside of TTTI underneath a tent starting at 6. Each VIP reception guest will receive a pre-signed copy of “She Said.” At 6:15, Kantor and Twohey will meet and address VIP reception guests and sponsors.
General admission tickets are $64 and doors will open at 6:30. To purchase tickets, visit cjn.org/SheSaid.
