Barry Newman’s new book is available

CUNY Journalism Press is proud to publish News to Me: Finding and Writing Colorful Feature Stories, the new collection of stories and essays by Barry Newman, widely known  as the “King of the A-Hed” for his many front-page feature stories in the Wall Street Journal over the past four decades. Barry Newman’s new book takes readers behind the scenes — how did he get that story? — and offers a charming and sometimes curmudgeonly mix of instruction and inspiration for anyone who writes, studies writing or teaches writing — and especially anyone who wants to find, report and publish the kind of stories that get people talking. The book’s official publication date is May 7, 2015, but advance copies have begun shipping, and you can order yours now.
