Terry Schwadron spent most of his working life in newsrooms at The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and The Providence Journal until last year when he left as a senior editor. Over that time, he did almost every job in the newsroom in print and electronic journalism, from reporter to editor to manager. At The New York Times, he headed newsroom operations, overseeing research, the use of technology by the newsroom and its effects on work flow, jobs and communications worldwide. He also created a group of specialized reporters who pursued and mined government records.

Terry, once a Newspaper Guild officer, has been allied with National Writers Union, and serves as treasurer of the National Writers United Service Organization, working with NWU member Esther Cohen on projects to encourage and gather stories from low-wage workers. That work is expanding to include partnerships with Riverside Church towards a pilot project that will support storytelling among residents of city public housing and other low-wage groups. A Harlem resident, Terry is a trombone player, with diverse musical groups, and is still available for New Year's Eve.
Join us at Booth 625 (see map) at the Brooklyn Book Festival Sunday, Sept. 21, 10 am-5 pm. Cadman Plaza across from the Brooklyn Court House.
