An Evening With Frank Abagnale
CUNY J-School
219 W 40 Street (7th & 8th)
7:00pm Refreshments
7:30pm - 9:00pm Program


Security consultant Frank Abagnale will talk about his youthful adventures as an international con man and gadfly whose memoir, "Catch Me If You Can", inspired the Steven Spielberg movie starring Leonard DiCaprio as Abagnale and was also the basis for a Tony Award-winning Broadway show of the same name.

The law eventually caught up to Abagnale who served time. But in an unusual twist, the FBI decided to hire Frank as a consultant to help with investigations involving certain kinds of fraud, counterfeiting, theft and other sophisticated crimes. Abagnale remains a consultant to government and to private clients who are victims of arcane thievery.

Come hear from Frank Abagnale about his "made for Hollywood" true-life adventures in what's sure to be a fascinating presentation and Q&A moderated by Steve Scott, Press Club president and WCBS Newsradio 880 anchorman.

Free admission for Press Club members and CUNY J-School students, faculty and alums. Admission is also free for members of the Overseas Press Club, The UN Correspondents Association, The Newswomen's Club of New York, Deadline Club, NYABJ, AAJA, SAJA, and The Society of Silurians. RSVP Required

"WEINER" - Documentary Film Screening
Thursday, May 19
7:15 pm
IFC Center
323 Ave of the Americas (West 3rd)


SUNDANCE SELECTS FILM LOOKS AT THE DESCENT OF FORMER NY CONGRESSMAN ANTHONY WEINER

SPECIAL INTERVIEW WITH DIRECTORS JOSH KRIEGMAN AND ELYSE STEINBERG

Sexts, lies, and Carlos Danger: watch the wildest political meltdown in recent history as it unfolds. It's 2013 and Anthony Weiner - still reeling from the sex scandal that ended his political career two years earlier - is back in the spotlight as he mounts an audacious comeback campaign for New York City mayor. But it's not long before history repeats itself and new sexting allegations leave Weiner and his aides scrambling to contain the damage.

Granted unfettered access to the candidate and his campaign, filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg capture a jaw-dropping, behind-the-scenes look at the political machine as it breaks down. Winner of the 2015 Sundance Grand Jury Prize.

The screening will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with the film's directors, moderated by documentary filmmaker Mona Lisa Mouallem, founder of The Wisdom Project and former CNN producer.

Free admission for Press Club members and CUNY J-School students, faculty and alums. Admission is also free for members of the Overseas Press Club, The UN Correspondents Association, The Newswomen's Club of New York, Deadline Club, NYABJ, AAJA, SAJA, and The Society of Silurians. RSVP is required.

Managing Director of The Times of London Literary Supplement visits in April.

He launched his parallel career as novelist and screenwriter in 2005.

On a book tour promoting his fifth book, a historical fiction thriller, Midnight in Berlin, which has journalists as main characters and includes William L. Schirer, one of "Murrow's Boys", in the narrative. We expect that James's raconteuring about the journalistic and literary adventures he's lived will make for an enchanting evening and a terrific Q&A opportunity for guests interested in exploring a literary life.

Journalist and author Tim Harper whose 12 books include Moscow Madness, License to Steal, and the ASJA Guide to Freelance Writing will moderate.

Free admission for Press Club members and CUNY J-School students, faculty and alums. Admission is also free for members of the Overseas Press Club, The UN Correspondents Association, The Newswomen's Club of New York, Deadline Club, NYABJ, AAJA, SAJA, and The Society of Silurians. RSVP is required.

Margaret Sullivan is the fifth public editor appointed by the New York Times and is the longest serving public editor to date, having served for three and a half years. In May, she will move on to the Washington Post having recently been appointed the paper's media columnist.

At the Times, Ms. Sullivan has written about journalism in a frequent blog, the Public Editor’s Journal, and in a twice-monthly print column in the Sunday Review section. The public editor’s office also handles questions and comments from readers and investigates matters of journalistic integrity. The public editor works independently, outside of the reporting and editing structure of the newspaper; her opinions are her own.

New York Press Club Board member, Beth Karas, will moderate.

Come hear from Margaret about how it went at the Times and what she may have in mind as media columnist for the Washington Post.

Free admission for Press Club members and CUNY J-School students, faculty and alums. Admission is also free for members of the Overseas Press Club, The UN Correspondents Association, The Newswomen's Club of New York, Deadline Club, NYABJ, AAJA, SAJA, and The Society of Silurians. RSVP is required.

23rd Annual Conference on Journalism


Saturday, October 3rd
New York University - Kimmel Center
West 4th Street and LaGuardia Place
8:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. - #NYPCJConf



RSVP NOW for New York's most affordable, accessible and informative gathering of journalists, journalism students, academics, and those in the know.

Keynote speaker this year is Mo Rocca, a humorist, journalist, and actor best known for his off-beat news reports and satirical commentary. Currently a correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning, Rocca is also the host of the CBS Saturday morning show Innovation Nation, and a frequent panelist on NPR's hit weekly quiz show Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! On the Cooking Channel, Mo is host and creator of the hit series My Grandmother’s Ravioli, in which he learns to cook from grandmothers and grandfathers across the country. In 2015, all three of Mo Rocca’s shows earned a total of five daytime Emmy nominations, with CBS Sunday Morning and Innovation Nation each winning for excellence in programming.

Rocca’s feature length documentary, Electoral Dysfunction, explores voting in America and the consequences of a Constitution that doesn’t include the right to vote (really). Rocca is also the author of All the Presidents’ Pets: The Story of One Reporter Who Refused to Roll Over.

Rocca was a correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart for four seasons, followed by four seasons as a correspondent on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He began his career in TV as a writer and producer for the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning PBS children’s series Wishbone. He was a writer and producer for ABC’s Pepper Ann, and Nickelodeon’s The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss. @MoRocca.
