Moderated by Mr. Yack, the panelists discussed developing nonfiction books from headline news stories. Golenbock, a former writer for the New York Times, has written books such as Go Gators: An Oral History of Florida’s Pursuit of Gridiron Glory. Boyd, book critic for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, is the author of Wrapped in Rainbows: The Life of Zora Neale Hurston. They talked about the relationship between journalism and book writing and how they go about beginning to craft a book about something in the news. The authors argued that there is a special approach required to writing a book that has to be completed in a timely fashion, in order to keep it current. After the presentation both panelists replied to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
