National Writers Series: An evening with Susan Goldberg and Molly Wizenberg

Sep 13, 2020

When many people think about National Geographic, they think of wildlife photography, and the stacks of magazines their parents collected. Editor-in-chief Susan Goldberg thinks that’s fine, but people should also think about National Geographic’s reporting on topics like gender and climate change. Before her current job, Susan Goldberg was a reporter for several newspapers, including the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the Detroit Free Press, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Susan wrote the introduction to the book “Women: The National Geographic Image Collection.” She spoke with Doug Stanton at a virtual National Writers Series event. Later in the program, we'll hear from Molly Wizenberg. Molly Wizenberg had been married to a man for ten years, when one day she found herself attracted to a woman. Her latest memoir, “The Fixed Stars,” tells the story of Molly’s journey of self-discovery that followed. Molly talked with acupuncturist and storyteller Elon Cameron during a virtual National Writers Series event.
