NYU’s Carter Journalism Institute to Host Gay Talese—Oct. 10

August 28, 2013

New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute will host author Gay Talese for an hour-long exchange with Max Linsky, co-founder of Longform.org, on Thurs., Oct. 10, 7 to 8 p.m. at 20 Cooper Square, 7th Floor (between 5th and 6th Streets).

The interview, a live podcast, is a collaborative effort between the Institute's Literary Reportage concentration and Longform.org, which recommends new and classic non-fiction from around the web.

Talese, author of Honor Thy Father, Thy Neighbor’s Wife, and Unto the Sons, among other works, is one of the pioneers of the “New Journalism” journalism—a form he helped make prominent as a writer for the New York Times and Esquire in the 1960s.

The event is free and open to the public, with seating on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call 212.998.7594. Subways: 6, Astor Place; N, R, 8th Street.

Reporters interested in attending must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu.

Editor’s Note:
The Literary Reportage concentration at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute aims to produce both good reporters and beautiful writers. Its students pursue their own long-form projects—local, national, or international in scope—that are mentored by veteran writers in reporting classes, literature seminars, writing workshops, and master classes taught by working editors.
