Roswell Reads Writing Workshop

“How to Write the Story of Your People (And Not Get Killed)” with Rick Bragg
Friday, March 15, 2019, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Roswell City Hall, Room 220

Don't miss this rare opportunity to spend an afternoon with Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and teacher Rick Bragg as he shares his insights about writing across a lifetime of literary achievements.

A popular journalist and writer known for nonfiction books, especially about his family in Alabama, Bragg populates his books with his "people" — the good, the bad and the ugly — characters that are unashamedly not thinly disguised.

Bragg has told stories and taught writing at Harvard University, the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, Boston University, the University of South Florida, and other colleges. He has had stories included in Best Newspaper Writing 1991, Best of the Press 1988, and two journalism textbooks on good writing and foreign reporting. He now works as a writing professor at the University of Alabama's journalism program in its College of Communications and Information Sciences.
