Contemporary non-fiction authors autographs. Part 9.
Nan and Gay Talese with others talk about writing and publishing
This flier reveals the autographs of authors Gay Talese and Michael Winerip. Captured on February 24, 1998 at a panel discussion about the book, The Art of Fact, at the Union Square B&N.
I also helped cover the now deceased Talese eight years later at a talk about his book, Gay Talese: A Writers Life at the STRAND bookstore in Manhattan. See the link below for the last book he worked on.
Talese wrote for The New York Times in the early 1960s and helped to define literary journalism or "new nonfiction reportage", also known as New Journalism. His most famous articles are about Joe DiMaggio, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.
This shows the signatures of book publishers Nan Talese and Jerrold Jenkins and literary agent Doris Michaels, captured on October 22, 1999 at the Small Press Center. Talese is the publisher of author James Frey's book, A Million Little Pieces.

Historians appear at the New-York Historical Society and Barnes & Noble
Richard Brookhiser is a leading historian, senior editor of National Review and a columnist for the New York Observer. I met him at the opening of the Alexander Hamilton symposium and exhibit showcasing a Declaration of Independence.
A flier from the Alexander Hamilton-focused symposium where Brookhiser was a panelist. His latest book is about William F. Buckley and Conservatism.
Kevin Coyne is a New Jersey historian who I helped videotape on February 20, 2003 prior to his book talk in Freehold, NJ, supposedly one of the oldest towns in the country.
His presentation featured some Freehold war veterans whom he wrote about, including a black man who continued to face racism after the war and the uniform of a recently deceased resident.
I met best-selling author E. M. Halliday on February 20, 2001 at a talk about his book, Understanding Jefferson, which helped expose Thomas Jefferson's slave offspring. It took place at the Citicorp B&N.
A longtime senior editor of American Heritage, Halliday is also the author of a memoir of the poet John Berryman and an account of the Allied invasion of Soviet Russia in 1918-19.
