Dr. Bill Presents the Audacious Adventures of Nellie Bly

August 30 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In 1890, a young reporter named Nellie Bly became the first person to circle the globe in seventy-two days, making the fantasy of Jules Verne’s novel Around the World in Eighty Days a reality. But Bly’s story is even more remarkable: as one of Joseph Pulitzer’s prize reporters, she spent years documenting the lives of America’s underclass, including her remarkable account of spending ten harrowing days in the most infamous asylum in New York City. This would be the first of many stories Bly would write as a covert reporter, single-handedly creating a whole new genre of journalism: underground investigative reporting.
