NPR’s Michele Norris To Take Summer Off To Write Book

NPR’s Michele Norris, host of “All Things Considered,” will take this summer off to work on a book of essays about race in America. She announced this at the end of her show Friday (h/t NYO).

The book is tentatively titled “Say What?” and Norris says in an interview with the New York Observer, “People talk about race one way in public and they often- not always but often- talk about it in a different way and at a different tempo in the private sphere… And I just want to pull back the curtain a little bit.”

Norris will travel around the country this summer as research for the book, making her first stop to see and interview her family in Alabama. Her NPR co-hosts Melissa Block and Robert Siegel, as well as Madeline Brand whose show Day to Day was canceled on NPR last December, will fill in for Norris until mid-September.

Awards, Serenades Aplenty At 2009 SPJ Hall Of Fame Dinner

Last night at the National Press Club, the Society of Professional Journalists DC Chapter inducted its 2009 honorees into the Hall of Fame. WaPo‘s Courtland Milloy was also presented the SPJ Distinguished Service Award (introduced by colleague Eugene Robinson). Hall of Famers included PBS’ Gwen Ifill, CBS’ Bob Schieffer, US News & World Report‘s Kenneth Walsh and BNA’s Toby McIntosh.

NPR’s Michele Norris was on hand to introduce Ifill- she pointed out a few things we may not necessarily know about the moderator of PBS’ “Washington Week,” including her fondness of James Brown.

That disclosure prompted something quite special- Schieffer’s band Honky Tonk Confidential was lined up to perform at the end of the awards presentation. Their playlist included regulars like “TV Anchorman” and “He’s in the White House Now,” but they surprised the crowd- Ifill, especially- with a encore of Brown’s “I Feel Good.”

On a more serious note, in his acceptance speech earlier in the evening, Schieffer asked the audience to remember the American reporters held in North Korea. “Remember what journalism is all about. The part we play in democracy is as necessary as the right to vote and a noble thing when done right. Going where the story is is not always the easiest thing to do, but it is the courage of the individual reporter that makes journalism what it is today,” he said.

A complete list of the awards given out last night can be found on SPJ’s website here.

Taking Out The Trash

What we almost missed today…

Richard Wolffe celebrated his new book “Renegade: The Making of a President” last night at Cafe Atlantico with friends and colleagues, including Valerie Jarrett, Gwen Ifill, Michele Norris, Emily Heil, Ezra Klein, David Axelrod, Jon Favreau and even Rashida Jones.

• The AP introduced a new column “Capital Culture” today, a joint venture between the WH team in DC and the Lifestyles team in NY. From the release: “This new column will include profiles of key administration players as well as the lesser known people who make the White House and Congress work. It also will provide insider glimpses of Washington power brokers and explore how the Obamas are impacting American culture, from fashion to gardening to pickup basketball.”

NPR To Interview Pres. Obama Today

NPR’s Michele Norris and Steve Inskeep will interview the President today with a focus on foreign policy, previewing Obama’s trip to the Middle East later this week.

According to the release, the interview will take place in the White House library and will air in two parts- tonight on All Things Considered and tomorrow on Morning Edition. You can also listen to the entire interview on NPR’s website beginning this evening at 7pm.
