Scribe: Welcome, writer! Tell us — what do you write?
Alan Reuther: I write memoir.
Scribe: If you could choose one author to blurb your book, who would it be, and what would you want it to say?
AR: Doris Kearns Goodwin; “A must read for anyone interested in the labor movement.”
Scribe: You have one book you’re allowed to push onto all of your friends, and they’re forced to read it to remain your friend — which one would you choose?
AR: All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. A great read!
Scribe: Tell us your WLT story.
AR: Several friends recommended that I join WLT to help me progress as a writer.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
AR: My dream is to publish a memoir about the lives of my parents.
Scribe: Here at the WLT, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one book that has come out within the past few years that you couldn’t put down? (Bonus points if the book is Texas related!)
AR: These Precious Days by Ann Patchett
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
AR: I am 72 years old. I used to head up the Washington Office for the Auto Workers Union. I retired 12 years ago. My wife and I moved to Austin about six years ago.
