Writers on a New England Stage: Barbara Walters

May 23, 2008

She's been called the "first lady of American journalism," known for her talent as a news anchor and for her historic interviews of leading newsmakers. In her new memoir, Audition, Barbara Walters shares her own story, reflecting on her professional and personal lives and sharing both the challenges and successes she's had in a life in the news. She came to The Music Hall in Portsmouth to talk with NHPR's Laura Knoy as part of the Writers on a New England Stage series, but the event was shortened when some audience members in the balcony said they felt the floor shift. You can hear the full, unedited event here.
