His books include Who Moved My Soap?: The CEO’s Guide to Surviving in Prison, The Republican Playbook, and The Borowitz Report: The Big Book of Shockers, a collection of articles from his online column, The Borowitz Report, which received the first National Press Club Humor Writing Award.

David Grann has been a New Yorker staff writer since 2003. “The Lost City of Z,” his New Yorker article about his journey into the Amazon to uncover the fate of a missing explorer, was expanded into a Times best-selling book. Many of his New Yorker pieces are collected in The Devil and Sherlock Holmes: Tales of Murder, Madness, and Obsession.

Jane Mayer joined The New Yorker as a staff writer in 1995 and covers politics and national security for the magazine. Her honors include the John Chancellor Award for Excellence in Journalism and a Guggenheim Fellowship. She is the author of The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How the War on Terror Turned Into a War on American Ideals, and the co-author, with Jill Abramson, of Strange Justice and, with Doyle McManus, of Landslide.

Susan Orlean has written for The New Yorker since 1987. Many of her pieces are collected in The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup: My Encounters with Extraordinary People and My Kind of Place: Travel Stories from a Woman Who’s Been Everywhere. Her book The Orchid Thief, which originated as a piece for the magazine, was the basis of the Spike Jonze film Adaptation. She is working on a book about Rin Tin Tin.

Jeffrey Toobin is a staff writer at The New Yorker and a senior analyst for CNN. His subjects for the magazine have included the Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer, Anthony Kennedy, John G. Roberts, John Paul Stevens, and Clarence Thomas. He is the author of five books, including Too Close to Call, A Vast Conspiracy, and The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court.

Calvin Trillin joined The New Yorker as a staff writer in 1963 and has contributed reporting pieces, humor, poetry, and essays. His many books include the comic novels Floater and Tepper Isn’t Going Out; Deciding the Next Decider: The 2008 Presidential Race in Rhyme; and the memoir About Alice, which grew out of his New Yorker piece “Alice, Off the Page.”

Hope to see you there!
