Mark DiIonno, The Star Ledger’s Award Winning Columnist, will talk about his new novel, The Last Newspaperman. Although it is fiction, it explores the real roots of tabloid journalism where it was born, in New Jersey! During the course of the story we visit Hopewell in 1932 where the infant son of Charles Lindbergh has just been kidnapped.
DiIonno has won four first place awards for his column writing from the New Jersey Press Association. His pieces have followed the most controversial Garden State stories including in recent years the Dharun Ravi trial and Governor James McGreevey resignation. A book signing will follow.
