A Multi-platform Media Success
Special Guest Hank Phillippi Ryan with a message for TCC
Tuesday, May 10 Annual Meeting, 5:30 p.m. at Assumption College
Communication is all about …well, communicating. This year the Communicators Club presents a master communicator as its Annual Meeting keynote speaker. And Hank Phillippi Ryan will have much to share with us.
As an award-winning investigative reporter, her career spans several media from broadcasting in radio and television, to writing for magazines, serving as press secretary and legislative aide
and most recently, penning crime fiction.
Many people know Ms. Ryan as the on-air investigative reporter for Boston’s NBC affiliate. She’s won 33 Emmys, 13 Edward R. Murrow awards and dozens of other honors for her groundbreaking journalism.
But besides that, she’s a bestselling author of eight mystery novels. National reviews have called her a “master at crafting suspenseful mysteries” and “a superb and gifted storyteller.” Her 2013 novel, The Wrong Girl, won both the Agatha Award for Best Contemporary Novel and the Daphne Award for Mainstream Mystery/Suspense, and is a seven-week Boston Globe bestseller. Truth Be Told is the Agatha Award winner for Best Contemporary Novel, an Anthony Award nominee and a Library Journal Best Book of 2014. Ryan also won a second Agatha Award in 2015 for Best Nonfiction, as editor of Writes of Passage, an anthology of essays by mystery authors, which was also honored with a Macavity Award and Anthony Award.
Ms. Ryan’s newest novel, What You See, is a RT Book Reviews Top Pick for “Exceptional suspense!” and named a Best Thriller of 2015 by Library Journal.
She’s a founding teacher at Mystery Writers of America University and 2013 president of national Sisters in Crime.
When we get together at Assumption College on May 10, she’ll share insights and lessons learned from her experiences in all these communications media.
