New York Press Club: An Evening With Hames MacManus, The Times (London)
Managing Director of The Times of London Literary Supplement visits in April. A reporter, editor and editorial director for several UK newspapers including The Guardian, James MacManus was posted for many years in Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) for The Guardian before becoming managing editor of The Times and ultimately, his current position as Managing Director of The Times Literary Supplement. He launched his parallel career as novelist and screenwriter in 2005.
On a book tour promoting his fifth book, a historical fiction thriller, Midnight in Berlin, which has journalists as main characters and includes William L. Schirer, one of “Murrow’s Boys”, in the narrative. We expect that James’s raconteuring about the journalistic and literary adventures he’s lived will make for an enchanting evening and a terrific Q&A opportunity for guests interested in exploring a literary life.
Journalist and author Tim Harper whose 12 books include Moscow Madness, License to Steal, and the ASJA Guide to Freelance Writing will moderate.
