An evening with Robert Giles will now be a virtual event on November 10.

Former Akron Beacon Journal editor Bob Giles will recount The Kent State shootings and how his reporters were able to get it right. His new book, When Truth Mattered, takes you inside the turmoil of the newsroom when bullets exploded on May 4, 1970, leaving four students dead and nine wounded. The heart-pounding story captures the flash of National Guard rifles, the stress of reporters pursuing the truth, and shows why high journalistic standards must still apply today.
