Writing About Writers: The First Ever History of the Guild


Congratulations to Miranda Banks, assistant professor of visual and media arts at Emerson College, on the release of her book The Writers: A History of American Screenwriters and Their Guild. This marks the first published history of the Writers Guild of America and is based on painstaking research conducted in the Writers Guild Foundation archive and library over the last six years. If you’re curious about “the thorny tale of the union that has represented [writers] for more than eighty years,” we’re proudly displaying our copy in the library for your perusal. Congratulations, Miranda!
