Description

How do you transform old FBI documents and historic records into compelling narrative histories of gangsters and Mob bosses that transcend the true-crime genre? Doug Swanson, a projects editor for The Dallas Morning News, and James Neff, investigations editor for The Seattle Times, will explain how. The two journalist historians will join James Swanson, author of "Manhunt," a nonfiction narrative about President Lincoln's assassination that Newsweek called one of the best nonficton crime books ever written. Swanson’s use of rare artifacts (like a lock of Lincoln's hair) and letters retrieved from obscure archives has earned him distinction as one of America's most popular narrative historians. The three authors will detail unorthodox research methods that unearth the stuff of best-sellers.
