Barry Newman Speaking Gig June 2

Event: New York Financial Writers’ Association presents an evening with Barry Newman When: Tuesday, June 2nd, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where: The Perfect Pint, 123 West 45th Street, New York, NY

Join the New York Financial Writers’ Association for an evening focusing on how to best use anecdotes in stories. 
Barry Newman will discuss ways to turn narrowly focused stories into narrative features for a broad audience of smart readers. Newman wrote for the Wall Street Journal, from the U.S. and abroad, for more than four decades. Most of his stories ran on the Journal’s front page. While he’s known for humor writing, his work dealt in accessible ways with serious subjects: immigration, macroeconomics, agriculture, development, trade, politics and foreign policy, to name a few. He will share some of the techniques he details in a new book, “News to Me,” published by CUNY Journalism Press: As always, the evening will feature light appetizers and NYFWA members’ first two drinks are on us. Guests of the NYFWA are welcome to attend for $15 at the door.
