  • Three Alumni Writers Step Up With New Works

    Jonathan Darman ’99, Steven John '01, and Grant Myers ’00 are in the spotlight this fall with new work. Jonathan, a former Newsweek reporter, examines a defining moment in American political history in his new book, Landslide: LBJ and Ronald Reagan at the Dawn of a New America, which Publisher’s Weekly called “a smart and perceptive narrative.” Jonathan will discuss the book at Politics and Prose Bookstore (5015 Connecticut Ave., NW,) on Tuesday, September 30, at 7:00 pm. Meanwhile, Steven John '01 just released his new book, Outrider, a futuristic novel about a group of men on horseback trying to save Las Vegas from high-tech terrorists. Finally, Grant is one of three screenwriters behind The Maze Runner, a fall Hollywood blockbuster based on the young adult science fiction trilogy by James Dashner. “I worked closely with Director Wes Ball for three months crafting the script,” Myers says. “Wes had very specific ideas for how he wanted the maze to look and function on film, and it was my job to craft the screenplay around his visuals.”
