Dave Wood's Book Report, Sept. 30, 2009

Email

Several years ago, the chair of the University of Minnesota Journalism Department felt me out about whether or not I would like to join its faculty as a writing teacher.

I replied that sounded great, thinking about its famous grads, like Harry Reasoner, Eric Severaid, Max Shulman, et al.

"Good," said the chair. "It'll be a tough sell, getting you accepted by the department?" How so, I asked.

"You don't have any publications," he replied.
