Pete Hamill joined students and the public for a Dialogue in the Salone of Villa la Pietra, where he shared stories from his early life, experiences that contributed to making him a writer, and how he made the transition from journalism to fiction. Hamill peppered his speech with advice for aspiring writers throughout, and spoke about the importance of reading good books to making everyone, from the erudite scholar to the banker, a better human being.
