Terry McDonell is the editorial force behind some of the most influential publications in American journalism.
He launched Outside; had tenures at Rolling Stone, Newsweek, Esquire, Sports Illustrated; and co-founded the literary website LitHub. Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter joins him to talk about his new book, The Accidental Life, and to hear about the raucous days of New Journalism with Hunter S. Thompson, practicing brinkmanship with David Carr and Steve Jobs, working the European fashion scene with Liz Tilberis, pitching TV pilots with Richard Price — as well as today’s digital landscape, where, McDonell argues, the demand for storytelling from trustworthy news sources keeps getting stronger.
Terry McDonell will be signing copies of his new book, The Accidental Life: An Editor’s Notes on Writing and Writers, following the event.Buy tickets/get more info now
