Weekly Roundup – Ted Conover, Sandra Steingraber, Richard Rodriguez

Happy Wednesday! Let’s see what our speakers are up to this week …

Ted Conover’s new book just came out- he writes “My new book, Immersion: A Writer’s Guide to Going Deep, is just out. It’s about the kind of writing I’m best known for, where the writer learns by placing himself in the world of his subjects for a time. I talk about gaining access, handling yourself once “inside,” turning experience into story, the special case of undercover reporting, and the ethical issues that surround this kind of longform nonfiction.”


Sandra Steingraber will be speaking at SUNY New Paltz next week.  Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from one of America’s fiercest environmental activists!


Everyone has an opinion on the Presidential election, and the debates that precede it. Check out what Richard Rodriguez has been thinking in this radio interview.
