April Saul has been a photojournalist at The Philadelphia Inquirer for more than 30 years. In that time, she has juggled daily newspaper assignments, longterm documentary projects and single parenting, and has received numerous honors including a Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Journalism and a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award.
Last year, Saul was awarded an Alicia Patterson Foundation Journalism Fellowship and an NPPA Short Grant to spend a year pursuing her documentary project, “Camden, NJ: A Spirit Invincible.”
Or as she puts it, “I won a year of my life.” While her work in Camden encompasses the city’s problems — homelessness, drug addiction, violence, abandoned buildings — “it also reflects the indomitable spirit of its residents, who are trying to live normal lives against difficult odds.”
Please join us at the Pen and Pencil Club on Wednesday, October 22nd at 8 p.m.
Saul will share work in progress from her Camden project.
•Photo Night at the P&P is produced by the Center for Public Interest Journalism at Temple University.

Every year, after our friends go to the Online News Association conference — this year in Chicago — we bring them out to share what they learned for the benefit or everyone else.
Come on out, have a good time, get a few drinks and learn something new about the changing world of digital journalism.
The Center for Public Interest Journalism at Temple University sent a party of 20 to the conference this year, and most of them should be present, but all conference attendees are invited to present for a few minutes each.
Please join us Wednesday, October 29th at 7:00 p.m.
