The New York Times’ Diana Henriques: Live Chat, May 11

Diana Henriques on PBS

Did you miss it?

Here’s a transcript of our LIVE chat with Diana Henriques which she put on her website. Or check out the Replay below.

Diana Henriques has worked at The New York Times for more than two decades. In her tenure as a financial investigative reporter, she led the paper’s coverage of the Bernard Madoff scandal and has now turned this mega fraud story from her beat into a book, The Wizard of Lies: Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust.

Less than a month after Henriques’ book hits the shelves, she’ll join us for a chat at 2 p.m. EDT on May 11. Stop by this hourlong conversation and bring your questions to learn more about covering Madoff and how you can turn your reporting into a book project.

Here’s Henriques’ bio from The New York Times:

Diana Henriques joined The New York Times in 1989 after almost 20 years’ experience elsewhere—as a government reporter at several New Jersey newspapers and as a financial reporter for The Philadelphia Inquirer. Since then, she has largely specialized in investigative reporting on white-collar crime and market regulation. Henriques was a member of a reporting team that was named a Pulitzer finalist in 2003 for its coverage of the aftermath of the Enron scandal. Her series exposing the exploitation of American military personnel by financial service companies was a Pulitzer finalist in 2005. She was also a member of a team that won a 1999 Gerald Loeb Award for covering the near-collapse of Long Term Capital Management, a hedge fund whose troubles rocked the financial markets in 1998. She has explored the expansion of tax breaks and Congressional earmarks for religious nonprofits and helped monitor money market funds in the financial turmoil of late 2008. Henriques is also a regular lecturer at business journalism classes and workshops and, in 2003, was elected to the board of governors of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW).
