‘Tis the season for our big annual forum. This year’s event, which is free, will be held from 1:30-5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 16 at the Montclair Public Library. The topic is “How The Public Got That Story: Why some stories stick and some don’t.” In the course of the afternoon, you’ll get a chance to meet many of the reporters who broke “Bridgegate,’’ hear what happens when you defy a subpoena, get the scoop on the new NJTV, and discover what your teacher got wrong about New Jersey in the Civil War. Social hour: 1:30- 2-p.m; panel discussion: 2-4 p.m.; coffee hour: 4-5 p.m. For more info on speakers and panelists, click here; to RSVP click here. For directions, click here.
