Embedded in Iraq: A Kiplinger fellow’s tale

Darrin Mortenson, a fellow with the Kiplinger Program in Public Affairs Journalism, will discuss his experiences as an embedded reporter during a May 3 lecture set for Page Hall at Ohio State University.

Mortensen will speak at 6 p.m.

The correspondent for the North County Times in San Diego filed more than 150 dispatches during three assignments with Marine units in Iraq. He also contributed stories for Time magazine and ABC News.

His experiences led him to write A Thousand Miles to Bagdad, a book published in 2003.
