Lawrence Meyer

Author of the Novel, The Final Edition

Lawrence Meyer, a writer at the Washington Post for 32 years, talks to Intellirights about his new novel on the newspaper business, The Final Edition. This book involves a wealthy family’s ownership of a newspaper from the Civil War to the end of the 20th century. In our interview, Meyer tells of the prominent role that newspapers have had in the United States, the nation’s rich tradition of family-owned newspapers, and how the digital landscape has led to the decline of newspapers in the print form.

During his career, Meyer reported on many historically important events, including the attempted assassination of Alabama Governor George Wallace, the Watergate break-in trial, the Watergate hearings, and the impeachment proceedings against President Richard M. Nixon. Meyer has published three other books, and his second novel, False Front, was nominated for the American Book Award.
