Book discussion -“Reporter: A Memoir” by Seymour Hersh in Yarmouth

January 23, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST

The Camden Conference presents a book discussion in Yarmouth on “Reporter” by Seymour Hersh on January 23 at 7pm. The discussion will hopefully take place at the Yarmouth History Center, 118 E. Elm St., Yarmouth, ME. Please check prior to the date to confirm.

Seymour Hersh’s fearless reporting has earned him fame, front-page bylines in virtually every major newspaper in the free world, honors galore, and no small amount of controversy. Now in this memoir he describes what drove him and how he worked as an independent outsider, even at the nation’s most prestigious publications. He tells the stories behind the stories–riveting in their own right–as he chases leads, cultivates sources, and grapples with the weight of what he uncovers, daring to challenge official narratives handed down from the powers that be. In telling these stories, Hersh divulges previously unreported information about some of his biggest scoops, including the My Lai massacre and the horrors at Abu Ghraib. There are also illuminating recollections of some of the giants of American politics and journalism: Ben Bradlee, A. M. Rosenthal, David Remnick, and Henry Kissinger among them. This is essential reading on the power of the printed word at a time when good journalism is under fire as never before.
