On Tuesday, March 12 at 7:00pm we welcome NPR National Correspondent Debbie Elliott. Based in Alabama, Elliott's coverage of the BP oil spill in 2010 and its aftermath has focused on the human impact of the spill. In 2010, she launched a series on Morning Edition and All Things Considered, "The Disappearing Coast," which examines the history and culture of south Louisiana, the state's complicated relationship with the oil and gas industry and the oil spill's lasting impact on a fragile coastline. And she is currently part of NPR's team covering the BP trial in New Orleans. The event is at the Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs at LSU's Manship School for Mass Communication. You don't need tickets because this event is free and open to everyone.
