Submersion Journalism: Reporting in the Radical First Person from Harper’s Magazine, a collection of fifteen pieces from the magazine, is about to go on sale. One of my stories is in the book, published by the New Press, and tomorrow I’ll be on a panel at New York University called Undercover Reporting in an Age of P.R.
Others on the panel are Ted Conover, author of New Jack (winner of National Book Critics Circle Award); Jeff Sharlet, author of The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power; Bill Wasik, senior editor of Harper’s; and Brooke Kroeger, chair of the NYU Department of Journalism.
All are invited. The event will be held at NYU’s Journalism Department:? 20 Cooper Square (Bowery across from E 5th St.),? 6th floor. It starts at 6:30 P.M.
