A national science reporter will visit UW-Madison April 23 to speak in journalism classes and participate in a week-long symposium of science writers called “Science Writing in the Age of Denial.”
Juliet Eilperin, an environmental reporter for The Washington Post, also will discuss her book, “Demon Fish: Travels Through the Hidden World of Sharks,” at the Pyle Center April 24. Her book, which focuses on human interaction with sharks, has been featured on National Public Radio and in magazines including Smithsonian, People and Popular Science. The event is free and open to the public.
Eilperin began her career at The Washington Post as a House of Representatives reporter where she covered numerous congressional campaigns and the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton.
Her other work includes coverage of the 2008 presidential campaign and a series of articles on the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
