The Oxford American is bringing several noteworthy writers and editors to Arkansas as part of its Summit for Ambitious Writers, not the least of whom is David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker since 1998.
Local journalists have a unique chance to meet this Pulitzer Prize-winner after his appearance Friday at 2:00 p.m.
Remnick will be interviewed by the OA’s Marc Smirnoff at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute on Petit Jean Mountain, and a reception will follow. SPJ members are invited to attend and meet Remnick.

Also appearing this week are William Whitworth, formerly of The Atlantic Monthly, and Pico Iyer, the highly-regarded travel writer.
