SPEAKER: GERALD ESKENAZI
Gerald Eskenazi's 44-year career at The New York Times went beyond trips to the Brazilian jungle or ringside. It was an immersive dip in the culture of the world's most important newspaper, where he learned the dos and dont's of the Old Grey Lady. But he also found fun in failing to follow the rules. Thus, we will learn what never happens to St. Cecilia or how he struggled to get the f-word (not what you think) into the paper. Along the way, he wrote 15 books and produced 8,000 bylines.
