Author and retired Post Star editor Ken Tingley will discuss his new book, a celebration of journalism and the inspirational people and events of small towns. 

This book reveals what is happening in small communities across the United States as their newspapers struggle to survive. It is a celebration not just of journalism, but the inspirational people and events of small towns. Importantly, it asks the question: who will be the community watchdog of the future? This book memorializes the American newspaper through the story of the Post-Star of Glens Falls, NY. The author, a devoted veteran of the Post-Star, compiles a series of vignettes that depict the newspaper's coverage over the years. They provide a glimpse behind the newsroom curtain through the stories of the investigative journalism done in small towns and the effect it all has on the journalists and their readers.

Ken Tingley was the editor of The Post-Star in Glens Falls, New York, from 1999 to 2020. He was president of the New York State Associated Press Association in 2010 when it merged with the state broadcasters association. He served twice on the board of directors of the American Society of Newspaper Editors and was a Pulitzer Prize judge in 2008 and 2009. He lives in Queensbury, New York.
