Mother Jones Editor in Chief Clara Jeffery and reporter Shane Bauer Speaking Event
Shane Bauer, a senior reporter at Mother Jones magazine, and Clara Jeffery (MSJ93) editor of Mother Jones will do a Q & A session at 10 a.m. Friday, May 19 McCormick Foundation Center Room 3-119, 1870 Campus Drive on the Evanston campus.

Bauer won Medill's John Bartlow Martin Award for his piece “My Four Months as a Private Prison Guard,” which was published in the July/August 2016 edition of Mother Jones magazine.

To report the story, Bauer got a job at a federal prison run by Corrections Corporation of America in Winnfield, Louisiana. The piece revealed poor security, poor training for guards and dangerous conditions for inmates and guards alike. Bauer paired his onsite reporting with deep dives into Department of Justice data, lawsuits and interviews with former CCA employees and inmates.

The piece also won a National Magazine Award in the “Best Reporting” category, the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting, the Anthony Shadid Award for Journalism Ethics, the John Jay Award in Criminal Justice Reporting, the Izzy Stone Award, and the Michael Kelly Award. Mother Jones also won “Magazine of the Year” at the National Magazine Awards.
