Five Secrets of Literary Journalism on March 8

March 8, 2023 @ 5:30 am PST

Award-winning PEN literary journalist Kathleen Sharp will discuss literary journalism, a popular form of telling true stories, at the next AWC-SB meeting scheduled for March 8, 5:30 to 7 p.m., at Work Zones, 351 Paseo Nuevo, Santa Barbara. Using examples from her own work for the New York Times, NPR, and TV platforms, she’ll reveal the elements that make a story great and that, ideally, deliver hope and sometimes justice.

As a contributor to ProPublica, Kathleen is currently writing about how looted art gets into public museums. Her groundbreaking story about a California rainmaker (whose case was the plot for the movie Erin Brockovich) will soon be featured in CNBC’s hit series American Greed. She’s also working with the producers of the HBO hit Tokyo Vice to adapt her bestselling book, Mr. and Mrs. Hollywood (Carroll & Graf), into a limited series – while writing her next book, a true tale about a teenage POW who won the Olympics for his captors.
