Lawrence Wright: Reporting as craft

Pulitzer-prize winner Lawrence Wright’s career as a staff writer for The New Yorker has taken him from in-depth, narrative reporting of Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State to developments within America’s neglected heartlands. Lawrence Wright is the author of Going Clear and The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda’s Road to 9/11. To coincide with the 15th anniversary of the Centre of Investigative Journalism, he came to talk about reporting as craft, his career as a writer and his new book God Save Texas: A Journey Into the Future of America.

Chair: James Harkin, Director, CIJ
