#LOGANCIJ Alex Perry on how to turn investigative journalism into narrative fiction.

    Monday 12 February 2018
    5PM LG01 PSH Building Goldsmiths


    In the second of our series of talks looking at how investigative journalism can be turned in story, veteran foreign correspondent Alex Perry comes to the CIJ to talk about how he and journalists like him are increasingly working with film and production companies to fund their investigations, and about the writing and selling of his latest book The Good Mothers, the true story about of a group of women who took on the world’s most powerful mafia.


    Alex Perry has written for The New Yorker, Newsweek, TIME, The Guardian, Roads and Kingdoms and others, and is the author of The Rift, Lifeblood and Falling Off The Edge. The Good Mothers has just been published by HarperCollins, and is currently being developed for film and television. Chair: CIJ Director James Harkin
