A Truth-telling Journey: From Newsprint to Bound Pages


A Truth-telling Journey: From Newsprint to Bound Pages

Three notable authors and former Times Union newspapermen – William Kennedy, Harry Rosenfeld and Paul Grondahl – pay tribute to the so-called “golden era of newspapering” and discuss how their journalistic pedigree influenced their writing in this intimate conversation with Times Union Editor Rex Smith and presented in partnership with the New York State Writers Institute.

The trio will touch on the task of writing, truth-telling and the richness of Albany as a subject and fertile ground for journalism and books. There will be time for audience questions.

The conversation will be preceded by a reception featuring hors d’oeuvres and Hearst wine courtesy of Times Union Publisher and CEO George R. Hearst III.

 Just in time for holiday gifts, the Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza will be on hand so attendees may purchase -- and have signed -- each authors’ books.  Among the titles available will be Harry Rosenfeld’s just-released second volume of memoir, “Battling Editor: The Albany Years.” It is a sequel to his highly praised “From Kristallnacht to Watergate.” In addition, there will be copies of a new book about Kennedy, “Bootlegger of the Soul: The Literary Legacy of William Kennedy,” featuring an overview of his literary career, excerpts from his work and more than 50 historical and personal photographs. Grondahl’s acclaimed political biography, “Mayor Corning: Albany Icon, Albany Enigma” will be available as well. 

Copies of three previously-published books whose proceeds go entirely to the Times Union Hope Fund, including “The Story of Albany,” “These Exalted Acres” and “Great Dogs of Albany,” will also be available.
