The Sept. 19 session of the Institute for Retired People will feature Post Standard/Syracuse Media Group columnist Sean Kirst.

Kirst will talk about “Before and After Digital: Stories that Matter.” Kirst joined the Post-Standard’s Oswego County bureau in October 1988, later becoming a Syracuse city reporter. In 1991, he was named a sports columnist, and in 1996, a metropolitan columnist, which provided an outlet for his award-winning human interest pieces.

IRP runs from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Syracuse, 5833 East Seneca Turnpike, Jamesville. Guests are welcome to attend.
