Ask Emily Bazelon Anything

The Sticks and Stones author is taking your questions on Reddit.

On Thursday, you can ask Emily Bazelon anything
On Thursday, you can ask Emily Bazelon anything

Hi, I’m Emily Bazelon, a senior editor at Slate and the author of a new book, Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. I also teach at Yale Law School, where one of my classes is designed around comparing the ethics of lawyers and journalists. Some might call that a race to the bottom, but I try to persuade my students otherwise. I write about the Supreme Court and, when I’m lucky, TV shows like Friday Night Lights and Breaking Bad. I’m also partial to dark topics with hope at the end of the tunnel, like restitution for child pornography victims, which I wrote about for the New York Times Magazine. I love Thursdays because I get to tape the Slate Political Gabfest with John Dickerson and David Plotz. (We’re doing a live show in New York on March 21.) Oh, and when I went on The Colbert Report to talk about my book, I made Stephen Colbert cry.

 

Join me Thursday, Feb. 28, at 1 p.m. ET on Reddit, where I’ll be happy to answer whatever questions you have about Slate, the Gabfest, my book, law school, and the thrill of being a guest on Colbert.

Emily Bazelon is a staff writer at the New York Times Magazine and the author of Sticks and Stones
