Beverly Stoddart joins Gibson's Bookstore virtually to present her new book, Stories from the Rolodex: Important Figures of Journalism in Their Own Words, in conversation with author Dan Szczesny. Featuring essays on several local voices from the golden age of journalism (George Regan, Regan Communications, Boston, is the first chapter and he is chairman and CEO of the 6th largest PR firms in the country. John Harrigan is a beloved NH writer known for his Water, Woods and Wildlife column. Joe McQuaid was publisher of the Union Leader for years. Both men give distinct ways of looking at life in NH. John Milne was a leader of NH media and worked politics for nearly half a century.), this book focuses on many news men and women holding up the fourth estate that never made the headlines.

In Stories from the Rolodex, you will learn the names of some of the most important figures of journalism who worked in the same era.  You will hear their voices as they tell of reporting from a battlefield in Vietnam, witnessing riots in Boston, covering airline crashes, facing discrimination, and finally being fired for telling the truth. These astonishing stories open new doors of understanding the job of the news as they tell, in their own words, the behind the scenes workings of people who knew how to get the job done.
