Description
Truth – and the ways that journalists, biographers, memoirists and others approach it in the 21st century – will be the subject of a symposium sponsored Oct. 11 by the Journalism Studies Program at Texas A&M University. The symposium, Truth in the Age of Nonfiction, will bring one of the nation’s leading biographers and two award-winning Texas writers to campus for a discussion of the challenges they and others face in producing nonfiction works that often rely on fiction techniques to engage readers. The event, which is free and open to the public, will include: A keynote by James McGrath Morris, founder of Biographers International and author of Pulitzer: A Life in Politics, Print, and Power (HarperCollins), which the Wall Street Journal called one of the five best books ever written on an American mogul. A panel discussion that includes Loren Steffy, a former Houston Chronicle columnist and author of Drowning in Oil: BP and the Reckless Pursuit of Profit (McGraw-Hill) and The Man Who Thought Like a Ship (Texas A&M University Press), and Denise Gamino, a former writer with the Austin American-Statesman and co-author of Around the World with LBJ: My Wild Ride as Air Force One Pilot, White House Aide, and Personal Confidant (University of Texas Press) Lunch (provided free to those who register). A book signing that will provide an opportunity to meet and visit individually with the authors. The program, which will be held on campus in Rudder Tower, will begin with registration at 9:30 a.m. The keynote will be at 10 a.m., followed by the panel at 11, lunch at noon and the book signing at 1 p.m. To register, please send an email to journalismstudies@tamu.edu with “truth” in the subject line.
