Michael Winerip

Michael Winerip is a Pulitzer Prize winning reporter for The New York Times and has spent more than 30 years as a reporter. He’s covered just about everything out there, from a smile contest in Louisville, Kentucky to a gold plumbing scandal that forced the resignation of a top school official in Miami, Florida. Armed with a collection of colourful stories and a distinct opinion regarding today’s educational system (he works as an education columnist for the New York Times), Michael Winerip’s debut book for young adults, “Adam Canfield of the Slash”, is a fast-paced, laugh-out-loud story. As they follow Adam and his fellow investigative Slash reporters at Harris Elementary/Middle School, readers will experience the excitement of breaking the big story along with the characters.
