Event Details

Tom Rosenstiel, co-author of the revered classic The Elements of Journalism, will share his first work of fiction, Shining City, at a National Press Club book event on Thursday, March 2 at 6:30 p.m. in the NPC’s Conference Rooms.

Rosenstiel has been a longtime observer of Washington’s political scene, and his intimate knowledge of the system’s inner workings pay off in this fast-paced political thriller. Readers follow the story of two fixers with a proven track record - Peter Rena and his lively partner – as they are tasked with their biggest job yet: to vet the president’s Supreme Court nominee. The president’s pick is a polarizing figure, and as power players on both sides of the aisle mobilize for and against, a series of seemingly unrelated killings complicates Rena’s task.

This event will feature an author discussion, audience question-and-answer session, and book signing. Tickets are $5 for Press Club members and $10 for the public. Books can be purchased online at the same time as tickets or at the event. No outside books or memorabilia are permitted. Proceeds from this event benefit the non-profit affiliate of the Club, the National Press Club Journalism Institute, which offers innovative, practical training to journalists and communications professionals working in a rapidly-changing media environment.
