A Virtual Evening with Amy Paige Condon, Craig Baggs and Dr. Gregory Bush

Event Date: October 13, 2020 7:00 pm

In the first biography of the late influential Miami News editor, Bill Baggs, Amy Paige Condon retraces how an orphaned boy from rural Colquitt, Georgia, bore witness and impacted some of the twentieth century’s most earth-shifting events: World War II, the civil rights movement, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the Vietnam War. With keen intellect and sparkling wit, Baggs seemed to be in the right place at the right time. From bombardier to reporter then accidental diplomat, Baggs used his daily column as a bully pulpit for social justice and wielded his pen like a scalpel to reveal the truth.

Conversation recorded live in partnership with Miami Book Fair October 13, 2020.
