The 30th edition in the “Best Newspaper Writing” series anthologizes the best newswriting and photojournalism selected by judges of the American Society of Newspaper Editors competition.
The 2008-2009 edition highlights the work of the winners and finalists and features interviews and essays about how they developed their outstanding work.
The book features investigative reporting, editorials, breaking news, narrative writing, columns, photojournalism and stories about immigration, race and ethnicity.
