Ronan Farrow, author of ‘Catch and Kill,’ joins the Times Book Club


Journalist and author Ronan Farrow will join Los Angeles Times Book Club readers on Oct. 22 to discuss his upcoming book, “Catch and Kill.”

“Catch and Kill” builds on Farrow’s Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporting on sexual misconduct allegations against powerful men and the efforts to silence survivors. The book will be published Oct. 15.

Farrow will be in conversation with Times Deputy Managing Editor Julia Turner at the Oct. 22 forum. The event is co-hosted by the book club and the Times Ideas Exchange at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.

“Catch and Kill” comes in the wake of reporting by Farrow, a New Yorker magazine contributor, about sexual abuse allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and other public figures.

The upcoming book details “surveillance and intimidation deployed by wealthy and connected men to threaten journalists, evade accountability and silence victims of abuse,” according to publisher Little, Brown and Company. “And it’s the story of the women who risked everything to expose the truth.”

The community forum on Farrow’s “Catch and Kill” and the #MeToo movement is a book club “extra” event this fall. Get tickets.

Event details: General admission rear orchestra seats are $25. Main orchestra seats (includes a copy of “Catch and Kill”) are $55. The VIP package (includes best seats, a pre-signed copy of “Catch and Kill,” a pre-event reception with Ronan Farrow and an L.A. Times Book Club tote) is $100. Times subscribers get a $5 discount on tickets. More info:
