NBC correspondent and MSNBC anchor Katy Tur has been covering President Trump since he announced he was seeking the Republican nomination in the summer of 2015. In her International bestseller,  UNBELIEVABLE: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History—now in trade paperback and with a new introduction (Dey Street, August 28, 2018)—Tur takes readers inside the darkly comic, fascinatingly bizarre and menacing world of the 2016 election: a presidential cycle that culminated in a former reality show host as the 45th President of the United States of America.

In a time when journalists and journalism are being threatened and in some cases, cast aside, Tur’s vital campaign memoir is more necessary than ever. The New York Times Book Review raved, “this book couldn’t be more timely.”

Katy Tur is an NBC News Correspondent and anchor of “MSNBC Live with Katy Tur” at 2pm ET on MSNBC. Tur is the recipient of a 2017 Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism. She lives in New York City.

    My friends and I want to hear the authors but aren’t interested in workshops. How are the authors being scheduled? Is there a talk and then a workshop and then a talk, etc?

      Thanks for asking. The workshops are FREE with admission and optional. They are running at Noon, before LitFest begins at 1 pm. Our author reading schedule runs in two sessions, with a book signing break in between. Please take a look at the schedule of events, here. We look forward to seeing you and your friends! It’s going to be an amazing day!

    I wanted to come to the Long Island LitFest 2017 for a couple of reasons: 1 of them is that I am in the process of what I hope to be a book about my experience with life in the past 10 or so years. I’ve experienced extraordinary circumstances and I believe that I could be of use to people out there if they read my story period I dealt with most of my tragedies and my dealings by being sober and by believing in something other than nothing. And I wasn’t really too much of understanding of the readings but I was very much interested in the workshops. Unfortunately my financial situation is such that I don’t even have that money to put aside for this function today. What I would like to know is if they offer free workshops anywhere and what do I have to do to sign up for those? Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and I hope to get a reply from you soon period thank you so much Toni Ann lettenberger
