Jarvis book named JEA’s ‘One Book’ to read in early 2015

Geeks Bearing Gifts, the exploration of the possible future(s) of the news business by CUNY Graduate School of Journalism Professor Jeff Jarvis, has been named the “One Book” to read over the next six months by the Journalism Education Association, the leading professional association of journalism educators. Here’s what the JEA said:

“Geeks Bearing Gifts: Imagining New Futures for News” by Jeff Jarvis was selected as the next JEA One Book with 41 percent of the votes in the online poll.

They say journalism is dying. But is it? In “Geeks Bearing Gifts: Imagining New Futures for News,” Jarvis argues that even though our tools as journalists have changed, our mission and values remain the same.

To purchase this book about the future of journalism, visit the the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism’s website ($20), or you can download a copy for $9.99 to your Kindle.

Twitter discussions will be held in February and March, leading up to a face-to-face discussion at the JEA/NSPA convention in Denver.
