For over three decades, Alex Kotlowitz has brought an acute and empathetic lens to on-the-ground reporting in many forms of media—print and radio journalism, documentary film, and books. His 1991 book, There Are No Children Here: The Story of Two Boys Growing Up in the Other America, was selected by the New York Public Library as one of the 150 Most Important Books of the 20th Century. Westchester Public Library is thrilled to announce we are hosting Alex Kotlowitz this fall, as he presents a special talk titled, "The Journalism of Empathy: The Craft of Nonfiction Storytelling."
Due to anticipated attendance, we will be hosting this special event offsite at:
Westchester Community Church
1840 Westchester Blvd.
Westchester, IL 60154
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 @ 7:00 PM
Books will be available for sale and signing. The Library will also raffle off two copies of Mr. Kotlowitz's new book, An American Summer: Love and Death in Chicago. Advance registration is requested: (708) 562-3573.
