The day begins at 10am with a keynote speech by alumnus David Talbot founder of Salon.com and best-selling author of Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years. Other writers participating in this event are: Susan Blackaby – children’s book author; David Ehrman – screenwriter; Charlie Haas – author; Claire Hoffman – freelance journalist; Robert Irion – freelance magazine journalist; Laurie King – author; Dan Pulcrano – CEO and Executive Editor, Metro Newspapers; Matt Skenazy – freelance journalist; and Gary Young – poet.
