Linda Wertheimer

Author, Journalist & Speaker
Enjoy our conversation with Linda K. Wertheimer, who is not the Other Linda of NPR fame, though she too is a journalist. Learn about Linda’s path from reporter at such newspapers as The Orlando Sentinel and The Dallas Morning News to Education Editor at The Boston Globe and to author. Her first book, Faith Ed, Teaching about Religion in an Age of Intolerance, was published in 2015 by Beacon Press and has won several awards, including second place in the Religion News Association nonfiction book contest.  From working in the Kmart cafeteria to babysitting and now doing public speaking on the intersection of religion and education, hear how she chose journalism after a summer program rather then following her dream to be a classical flautist. Linda shares her tips for getting started writing professionally and the importance of a community to support you during the process.
