Jill Rooney Carr is the wife of the late David Carr and editor of his book Final Draft. Jill Rooney Carr works in hospitality in the New York City area. She and David Carr married in 1994.
Final Draft is a career-spanning selection of the legendary reporter David Carr’s writing for The New York Times, Washington City Paper, New York Magazine, The Atlantic, and more.
Throughout his 25-year journalistic career, David Carr was noted for his sharp and fearless observations, his uncanny sense of fairness and justice, and his remarkable compassion and wit. His writing was informed both by his own hardships as an addict, and his intense love of the journalist’s craft.
She will be in conversation with John Schwartz, reporter at The New York Times, where he is part of the NYT’s climate change team.
Words Bookstore will be selling copies of the book at the event.
