Well-known reporter T. R. Reid will lead a lecture beginning at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Juneau Arts & Culture Center.

Reid has also written and hosted documentary films for National Geographic TV, PBS, and the A&E network. He has written six books in English and three in Japanese and has translated one book from the Japanese. His most recent book, ‘The Healing of America,” came out in 2009 and became a national best-seller. PBS Frontline produced two documentary films, “A Second Opinion” and “Sick Around the World,” following Reid as he reported that book.
