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