Left Coast Writers® Book Launches: Todd Crawshaw - heretofore

Monday, January 14, 2013 - 6:00pm
Left Coast Writers® Book Launches at Book Passage in the Ferry Building

“Wyatt T. Frog had observed many fascinating things in his life but never had he seen a girl falling from the sky—until now.”  

So begins this fantastic tale, a modern-day Alice in Wonderland melded with the satirical humor of Catch 22. Both of these great novels were the inspiration for heretofore ($16.00), Todd Crawshaw's latest novel.
 
Todd Crawshaw is the author of the novel Exploits of the Satyr and Light-Years In The Dark: StoryPoems

CWC Presents: Scott Anderson - Literary Journalism and The Enduring Power of Creative Nonfiction

Sunday, February 24, 2013 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Scott Anderson - Literary Journalism and The Enduring Power of Creative Nonfiction

Creative nonfiction begins from the premise that life can speak for itself if we can only find the structures to contain it and the words to celebrate it. One of the most influential and controversial wings of this movement is Literary Journalism, an approach that was pioneered in the 1960s by wordsmith reporters like Tom Wolfe, Truman Capote and Hunter S. Thompson.After experiencing ups and downs in the 1970s, the genre saw a storming resurgence in the late 1980s with writers like Jon Franklin, David Simon and Jon Krakauer.

On Feb. 24, award-winning journalist Scott Thomas Anderson will discuss how he turned to Literary Journalism and other elements of creative nonfiction during a crisis in his writing career - the assignment of capturing, in a meaningful way, the child abuse, elder abuse, domestic violence, assaults and homicides he was witnessing around methamphetamine during his 18 months as an embedded reporter with law enforcement. 

Scott Thomas Anderson is a journalist who has written for publications like The Sacramento News and Review and Sierra Lodestar magazine. He’s worked as a foreign correspondent for Radio Kerry in Tralee, Ireland, and he’s been published in The Irish Independent, Dublin’s  largest daily newspaper. Scott is currently a crime reporter for the northern California newspaper, The Press Tribune
