A public program with top journalists whose recent books were chosen by NYPL as finalists for this year's Helen Bernstein Book Award for Excellence inJournalism.  On the eve of the award ceremony, finalists Dan Fagin, Sheri Fink, David Finkel, Fred Kaplan and Jonathan Katz discuss their work with James Hoge, former editor of Foreign Affairs.

Since 1988 the annual award, which includes a $15,000 cash prize, has been given to journalists whose books have brought clarity and public attention to important issues, events, or policies.  Previous winners of the award include Katherine Boo, Ellen E. Schultz, Shane Harris, and Jane Mayer.  The Helen Bernstein Book Award for Excellence in Journalism was established through a gift from Joseph Frank Bernstein, in honor of journalist Helen Bernstein (now Helen Bernstein Fealy).
