Napa Valley Writers host Scott James

Napa Valley Writers will host Scott James on Wednesday, Oct. 14 to speak about his interviewing techniques and how to get sources to share intimate memories, from 7 to 9 p.m. via Zoom.

For the last 10 years, James has been working on his book, Trial by Fire, which tells the story of the deadliest rock concert in modern American history. Despite this attention and the magnitude of the tragedy, there were never any trials, criminal or civil, and key questions remained unsolved.

James spent years in pursuit of the truth and interviewed several of the fire’s central figures who had remained silent for 15 years, including two of the accused “killers.” To get to this level of interviews, James needed to get inside the heads of his subjects, which was way beyond the confines of traditional journalism.

Marty Malin will be October’s Member Reader.

Napa Valley Writers, a branch of the California Writers Club, currently holds meetings via Zoom. The cost is $5. Students with ID are free.
