This week, our #NYTReadalong guest is Dan Barry, a longtime reporter and columnist for The New York Times and a great storyteller. He is the author of several books and has won several awards for his work, including a Pulitzer Prize in 1994 and a George Polk Award in 1992. Before joining The Times in 1995, he was with The Providence Journal.
We’ll focus on several of his more recent articles including:
Behind the Entenmann’s Cellophane, a Slice of Long Island Life (.pdf 2MB | online) The passing of a founding baker reminds our writer of what the brand meant, and still does, in its birthplace — banana crunch, polysorbate 60 and all.
One Small Step for Democracy in a ‘Live Free or Die’ Town (.pdf; 5MB | online) A cautionary tale from Croydon, N.H., where one man tried to foist a change so drastic it jolted a community out of political indifference.
The Men Lost to 20 Bruckner Boulevard (.pdf 20MB | online) They were transforming a century-old Bronx ice house into a charter school. It became one of the deadliest construction sites in New York City in almost two decades.
