The Journalist: Life and Loss in America's Secret War with author Lucy Rose Fischer
Thursday, August 19 • 3–4:30 PM via Zoom
My book, The Journalist: Life and Loss in America’s Secret War, tells the story of my late brother, Jerry Rose, who was a journalist in Vietnam in the early 1960s. Through his articles and photographs published in the major news media, he exposed the secret beginnings of America’s Vietnam War at a time when most Americans had not yet heard of Vietnam.
I have written this unusual memoir in “collaboration” with my late brother, based on his journals, letters, and other writings—giving the term “ghostwritten” a whole new meaning.
My presentation, “Journalist in Vietnam: My Brother’s Story,” resonates especially with people who are now 55+ and who came of age watching the Vietnam War on their TV sets. My presentation has two themes: a 1960s story about a young journalist in Vietnam and a brother-sister story.
The Journalist just received an Independent Publishers Gold Award and is also a winner of a Foreward INDIES Book Award.
Presenter: Author Lucy Rose Fischer.
