Ninety years ago, just down the street from the Kaplow office, at the Algonquin Hotel, influential American writers and journalists met daily to discuss their work, ideas and opinions while gossiping and giggling. Led by Dorothy Parker, friends Robert Benchley, and Robert E. Sherwood gathered with literary contemporaries including critic, Alexander Woollcott, playwrights George Kaufman and Edna Ferber, and New Yorker editor and founder Harold Ross. The Algonquin literati are credited with influencing the work of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway.
On Tuesday, September 15, Kaplow will host the Algonquin 3.0, an incarnation of Dorothy Parker’s roundtable. Joining moderator Liz Kaplow are esteemed industry experts, journalists and thought leaders Sree Sreenivasan, Jean Chatzky, Lesley Jane Seymour, Lincoln Millstein, and Alan Levy.The panelists will discuss the changing media landscape, in a discussion entitled “Don’t Write Them Off: Television, Newspapers, Magazines, Radio Reinvented.” It’s sure to be a lively conversation about how media convergence affects the work of writers, journalists, and public relations professionals.
