The "candid conversation" features Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Margulies and award-winning journalists — and married couple — Emma Daly (communications director of Human Rights Watch, and a former correspondent for the Independent and The New York Times) and Santiago Lyon (director of photography for the Associated Press).

The panel will address "how war reporters reckon with news ethics, covering violence and the effect of combat on their domestic lives."

This public forum — moderated by Bruce Shapiro, executive director of Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma — is free. Time Stands Still is the acclaimed new Broadway play now at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. In it, Sarah (played by Laura Linney) and James (played by Brian d'Arcy James), a photographer and a journalist, have been together for years and share a passion for documenting the realities of war. "When circumstances compel them to return home to New York and their circle of friends, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life," according to MTC.

The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, a project of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, is dedicated to informed, innovative and ethical news reporting on violence, conflict and tragedy.

Through its awards and fellowship programs, professional development, research, website and other work, the Dart Center provides journalists and news professionals around the world with the resources necessary to meet the challenges of reporting on street crime, family violence, natural disaster, war and human rights.
