February 12, 2013A talk by Mitchell Zuckoff - "Hiding in Plain Sight: Finding and Telling True Stories that Other Writers Overlook"Using examples from his work writing for newspapers, magazines, and books, Zuckoff explains how writers can adopt and apply a story-hunting mindset that allows them to see the world through a lens of narrative possibilities. He also discusses how to develop those ideas to their maximum potential, both creatively and in terms of publication. Mitchell Zuckoff is a professor of journalism at Boston University and former special projects writer for "The Boston Globe." His most recent book is "Lost in Shangri-La: A True Story of Survival, Adventure and the Most Incredible Rescue Mission of World War II," a "New York Times" bestseller and winner of the Winship/PEN New England Award. His previous books include "Robert Altman: The Oral Biography"; "Ponzi's Scheme: The True Story of a Financial Legend," and "Choosing Naia: A Family's Journey." He is co-author of "Judgment Ridge: The True Story Behind the Dartmouth Murders." Zuckoff's next nonfiction book, to be called "Frozen in Time," will be published in April by Harper. His magazine work has appeared in "The New Yorker", "Fortune," and other national and regional publications. While at the "Globe," Zuckoff was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for investigative reporting and won the Distinguished Writing Award from the American Society of Newspaper Editors, the Livingston Award for International Reporting, the Heywood Broun Award, and the Associated Press Managing Editors' Public Service Award, among other national honors.Presented by the Brown University Department of English
